Inspect CV boot under downpipe every oil change. It tends to be the first to go since is so close to the heat.

Boost check the car yearly to check for intake leaks that can cause a lean condition.

Front and rear dif oil changes every 30,000 miles (these are often overlooked)

Get rid of OEM brake pads as they tend to deposit on the rotors causing a warped rotor sensation.

Replace LCA bushings with aftermarket Whiteline or AVO with offset caster bushings. Reduces swaying on the highway from high side winds and helps with cornering ability. OEM ones tear very easily.

Replace swaybar endlinks with solid or Rallitek oem style to eliminate clunks in the front end when going over bumps.
