One more item that many will probably disagree with me on and that is axles should have been replaced.

IMO when the axle boots are shot, time to replace axles especially if this is going to be a DD or long term hold. OEM axles are anywhere from $337 to $350/ea and that's if you can find them. Rebuilt axles are $125/ea depending on the supplier and then again I think all the "rebuilders" do is slap on new boots and paint.
