Take a good look at your outer tie rod ends too. It's good to freshen those up when you're going that far.

i would fo new dust seals on the axle shafts into the hubs... and new vacuum seals for the hubs if you have them, and the o-rings on the hubs themselves... always a good idea to replace seals when you have it apart, expecially when it is so extensive to take it back apart
