    Endless list but in reality nothing unless it's broken.
    While you have it disassembled, check the stabilizer bar links, if very corroded, replace them, about 20 for a set of 2.
    Some would say you need a new axle nut when you replace the hub, I reuse the old ones in the front. The rears definitely need to be replaced if bearing is replaced.
    Otherwise, drive, enjoy and act only if you hear some noises.

    Check the caliper mounting brackets to make sure they move freely back and forth. If you see one pad worn a lot more then the other the mounting bracket is sticking.

    Just replaced the hubs on my 2010 at 104K miles. Did one side, was still making noise. Did the other and it went away. Sometimes the hubs are difficult to remove from the knuckle. They rust tight. Used a $100 tool to beat them out. Can probably go at it with a 5 lb. sledge and chisel.

    And, as PL mentions above, I recently replaced the stabilizer links too. One of them had broken. Look them over.
