What bottom bracket should I be looking for on this rebuild?

OK, let me start off by saying I am NOT a wrench, I just like riding, so forgive me

For getting anything wrong.

I’m re-building this 98 frame and using a XT crank pictured here.

I know I need to be using a 73mm width BB but GD there are so many options out there.

Linked below is what I was looking to pick up off amazon, am I on the right course here?

If not where would anyone recommend getting the right BB at?

Also, while you’re here, does anyone have a good source for rebuilt 1 1/8th forks?

Preferably Fox??

Here's the BB I was looking at
https://www.amazon.com/SHIMANO-BB-ES51-Octalink-Bracket-68x118-mm/dp/B001S32P0G/ref=asc_df_B000IQECUK/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312131999963&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6358106924866157912&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030032&hvtargid=pla-570014580229&th=1&psc=1

Thanks y’all

Though that link has 68x118 in it, the page it took me to was a 73x113, which would be correct.

Can't help you on the fork, though.
