I've got an 01 Double Cab that is sitting at 190k.
The only thing it's ever had done is some 5100's and Energy Suspension urethane bushings were put on the front at around 80-90k.
I've just recently added an ARB bumper (with a winch to come) and was wondering what all I should look at replacing. The shocks and springs obviously need to be replaced (open to suggestions since I'll need something to handle the bumper and winch), but what about ball joints and and that sort of thing? After 190k, my truck is in need of an alignment, so what all should I consider replacing before having that done?
All in all, I just want to keep the stock as close to stock ride quality and height as possible.
Also, I'm pretty sure I'm still running the original plugs and plug wires so that is another item I'm looking to replace? Should I go with OEM parts for that or is there an aftermarket set of plug wires that perform as well or better?

Thanks!

I would suspect most of the suspension components would be due, even if just highway miles. In addition to the shocks, expect to replace ball joints, tie rods, steering rack bushings, the inner bushings in upper and lower A arms (or the entire A-arm). I have a mostly stock 04 I use as a daily driver that rarely sees off road and at 110K I am having to replace all of these. I have second 04 that is highly modified "overland" style that sees a lot of hard dirt miles and I usually have to replace these components around 50 to 70K miles. As for shocks there are a lot of good options out there, but would suggest you find something adjustable so that you can get the height correct with the bumper and winch. I have ICONs on both trucks and love them, but they are pricey. You didn't mention type of engine, so I will comment on the V-6 as that is what I have. The timing belt should be replaced every 90K miles, though people often go a lot longer, just depends on how much you want to risk being stranded. When the timing belt is replaced, there are a number of other components that should be done at the same time as the work to get in there has to be done anyway to get to the timing belt. Around that many miles and age a lot of your oil seals start leaking and I like to replace them and the valve cover gaskets while I am at it. Depends if you are seeing oil leaks and how much they are bothering you. Also inspect all your coolant and vacuum hoses and replace any that are cracking or hard. I tend to buy Toyota parts as they are far superior to most aftermarket-- look how long they have lasted you!-- but they are pricey. Again this is up to your budget, but if you can afford it now, it will likely save you in the long run. A couple tips on where to get Toyota parts. Going to the dealer counter you will likely pay full price, but a lot of dealers have online pricing, with the good ones offering up to 30% discount... but they kill you on shipping, so if you local dealer has online pricing, even if only 20% off it might be cheaper than buying a 30% off with shipping. I use Toyota Parts Factory - #1 Source for Genuine OEM Toyota Scion Parts & Accessories | Camelback Toyota Parts as they are local and I can save shipping. They used to offer good discounts with additional for some of the forums, but have dropped the club discounts and online pricing is not longer competitive. I have been finding Your Source for Genuine Toyota Online Parts | McGeorge Toyota Parts even with shipping often beats Camelback now. Another good source is PartSouq Auto Parts Around the World it is a bit scary ordering parts from UAE, but I have done it several times now. Shipping is very reasonable and often beat getting orders to me when I have ordered from US dealers at the same time. Below is a list of what I recently bought for my daily driver's engine refresh. If the manufacturer is listed other than Toyota, it is the exact same part, just from the manufacturer Toyota buys the part from before putting it in a Toyota box. It was over $500, but list price is close to 3 times that. The first 15 items are required in my opinion, the others are optional... and again this is for a 2004 V-6, your part numbers might be different even if your is a V-6 being on an 01. Hope this helps!
