Flush the brake fluid (IMPORTANT) and also perhaps the coolant.  Check
the parking brake releases properly at the discs.  Grease the zerk on
the prop shaft UJ.  Pull off, clean and replace the chassis grounds to
the inlet manifold.  After 1000 miles, check all the CV joint boots.

Why go for an after-market exhaust when the stock ones last 16 years?
