Replacing CV axles again - what else should I replace/inspect?

I have 210K miles on my '03 and my second set of CV boots is torn. I'm going to reboot and reinstall my saved OEM CV axles and replace the diff side oil seals and steering knuckle dust seals. Is there anything else I should replace or inspect while it's apart? I briefly looked at the suspension bushings and didn't see anything fully deteriorated, but as old as it is it seems like something is bound to fail.

Also, are the steering knuckle seals just dry dust seals with no lubrication, or is there a grease zerk?

No zerks, theyre kind of a pain to get in. Easiest to remove the knuckle and lay it on a flat surface, use a piece of wood or I believe 4 pvc cap will fit also. I honestly used the dust cap for the axle nut it fits perfect lol.
