[s-cars] Strut Bearings -- anything else???

While replacing the struts and springs all around, one would be prudent to
replace the strut bearings and mounts.  From the experience of listers
(especially those with high-mileage S4's), what other suspension components
would it be wise to replace to get another 100K miles of tight suspension
on a 90K mile S4?  It's easy to do now once the suspension is apart anyway.

I was thinking of replacing the sway bar mounts and the bushings where they
enter the control arm.  Any thoughts on control arm bushings, ball joints,
tie rod ends, etc.??
