Those light metal straps on the ps hard lines is probably to help prevent vibration fatigue. There were on my '90 D250 too. I bet that stuff disappears the first time the lines are changed...

If I were to do my mods over again, I would have done the spring much sooner.

I suggest picking up a Bosch VE gasket kit. Good chance of tearing a gasket or it not sealing again. I got fed up...

Most likely nothing to worry about with stock leafs.

I have successfully run 3" lift and 5" shackles by grinding/smoothing the stock Saginaw CV... or a stock Spicer (2ndgen) CV works unmodified.

Replace any parts with obvious/generous play in them, and make sure you have at least 5 caster. (Stock/factory spec is not enough.)

I always run a basic single stabilizer on kingpin D60s. The one...

The reason I suggested the tuner isn't specifically to have more power for towing. Some of them give you gauges and tune the transmission also.

I can't see that being it. That could only really happen in 4wd with the rear driveshaft disconnected. These trucks are under-caster'ed from the factory. Longer shackles tilts the axle just like...

The cummins D250's sticker should read 3830# front and 5450# rear. (What my '90 says)

Most of the parts I buy on rockauto (that fit) are listed as for the 4000# front and 9000# rear.

I know those items exist.... kind of a bandaid, IMO, for a tweaked housing, weak/worn kingpins, etc. Camber tends not be a problem unless its so bad its directly causing uneven tire wear.
