Ok, I will.

Then the whole cooling system:
fan, rad, expansion tank, bleeder screw, thermostat, thermostat housing, upper & lower rad hoses, water pump, rad cap, and if needed the fan clutch.

The fan clutch is the one component that can fail and not be an immediate catastrophe.

Then there are all the suspension bushings, the control arms, the tie rods, the bearings, the reinforcements for the rear shock mounts and the front shock tower reinforcement plates.

Get through all that, then we'll start going over the rest.
I even need to replace the radiator? Why? does it get clogged up?
