Default 200,000 Mile Service Ideas

I'm coming up on 200,000 miles, and was wondering if there'* anything I should be looking at replacing beyond the usual service stuff. At this point I'm planning on Oil, air filter, wiper blades, plugs, wires, tires and alignment (I've got some serious uneven wear going). I'll peek at the rear brakes to see how they're doing, the fronts look fine.

I did the UIM/LIM at 185k, and redid the coolant elbow last weekend, so I'm feeling pretty good about those.

Its got a very slow drip of oil coming off the oil pan (less than a 1/4 qt between changes). I looked through some other posts and found a few mentioning loose bolts on a real seal that could lead to oil running down there too. In either case I'm thinking of holding off on fixing it until its a bigger leak, unless this is a symptom of something catastrophic to come.

Thanks for any ideas!

Keep going, you must be doing a lot of highway.
Its allways good to go through the glove box maintainence checklist.

Most likely it'* the rear cover bolts.

I'd say check the struts and roll on
