Change the stock alloy front dogbones to steel dogbones (46mm)
Parma hard bumper (if you can find one)
Good to have some spare arms, castor blocks, c-blades. Also steering blocks and rear hub carriers if you don't change to the alloy versions of those.
A selection of springs is nice to have. Kit springs work well in a variety of conditions, but with high traction carpet, I usually change the front ones to 367 or even 393 sometimes.
A few spare bearings are always good to have.
Alloy bellcrank is nice. I really like the alloy radial Ackerman inserts.
Some quality screws including longer ones for the suspension mounts (long enough to go through the bulkheads)
That's about all I can think of right now. Maybe some shims for things like the shock pistons.
Hope you enjoy your new car
