CGT Rebuild -- what else should I do...

About 2 weeks ago the CV joint on my 83 CGT gave out, so I figured heck, 
while I'm in there, I might as well replace the clutch (still orig. w/ 
190k).  Well, then I figured I might as well upgrade to Bilsteins & H&R's 
while a lot of the stuff's apart.  Since I'm doing that, new poly bushings 
on the control arms and strut bearings seem appropriate.  Ball joints & tie 
rods are fairly new.  So my question is, since about half the car is being 
stored in plastic ziploc bags waiting to be reassembled, is there anything 
else I should consider replacing or upgrading while it's all apart?

Another question, is the sway bar on a 4kq really thicker than on a CGT?   
If so, does anyone have one they want to part with?

Oh, and yes, I was tempted to do the turbo swap, but changing the engine 
seemed a little extreme when only the CV joint was originally bad!
