Z400 suspension overhaul

Hi guys,
Im tearing down my Z400 for a engine overhaul and figure i mind as well do it all. It's a very tired machine and id like to throw some performance into my mix. 90% of my riding is in trails up here in MI, i do the dunes once a year maybe. Id like to get good bang for my buck, not looking to overspend for a little power thats not noticable in my riding. So far all ive collected piggy back shocks and yfz calipers.
Are extended A-Arms worth it for just trail riding? A lot of the trails I run are decently wide but do get technical.
I did search but found nothing. Is there a master bearing/bushing kit available or a list for the whole quad floating around?
What length SS lines is everyone running or is their a good premade line for the yfz swap?
Anything else im missing?

Thanks everyone!
