I need help with components

I recently wrecked my 7.3FX 2011. App two weeks ago went to LBS done a quote for ordering new shifters, upgrading. Truing the wheel. Well help told me parts weren't even ordered. So I am getting ready after a set amount of time to pick it up myself and do they work myself. I do not understand group sets or how to figure them out. Would you please help me. I am a tech where I work, perty sure I can do this, might take me a awhile to figure out how to set up shifting but I will get it.

Its about tiers , price points.. what riding participation do you have in mind?

IIRC you were going to upgrade to 9 speed from 8, since you broke the shifter.
You'll need-
9 speed cassette with your choice of gearing.
9 speed chain
Shifter or integrated brake/shifter.

Is you shifter separate from the brake lever or combined?

Thanks for the great reply!
My shifters/brakes are combined. Where I have problems is that Trek 7.3 FX uses a mixed group. So I was having a hard time tring to figure out which I need. I feel if I need to buy I might as well upgrade for a few bucks more. If you would point me to the right group set I would be thankful.
