Routine maintenance for suspension?

So im getting ready to replace the wheel bearings on my WJ and id like some input on what else I should replace in the front end since i'll have it all taken apart?

Nothing has ever been replaced in the front end, its all the original oem equipment up there. I will getting an alignment done once its all back together.

Check CV boots for cracks and if yes then replace.

Re: Routine maintenance for suspension?

When there is any play on the steering wheel, you could check out the steering rod ends, the upper and lower ball joints (the upper are greaseable and should get some grease now and then).
Check the track bar bushings for play, the stabilizer links for worn bushings. Also have a look at the upper and lower control arm bushings for wear.
Also don't forget to lubricate the brake caliper sliding pins before you put them back on, to prevent dragging brakes.
