I'm going to be doing the 5 lug swap this weekend, should I do these things too??

With the 5 lug swap, I'm considering replacing all the cotter pins and casle nuts (haha i actually know what those are!!)

The hubs on the knucles I bought look to be in decent shape, but since I dont know their history or mileage, shoudl I just go ahead and replace them? How can I check to them to make sure they're in decent shape to use?

Lastly, the Wheel Bearings. I'm not sure I even need these. I've just read serveral DIY's where people decide to do these while they're at the whole job. How do I inspect mine? and if they're rough and could use replaceing, is that something I can usually pick up froma parts store (like autozone or pep boys) or is that a dealer only thing?

Is there anything else I should examine or inspect while I'm taking 5 days to do a 1 day project this weekend???

All 4 rotors and all 4 pads are going to be brand new. I'll probably do steel lines someday but not now.

Any other thoughts?

Thanks!
