High-ish Miles!

Okay so my poor goat has reach the over 100k mark (and a few months back actually so shes a bit over it now). What things should I have looked at, upgraded, changed, swapped? I am putting her up for the winter months. In the spring I plan to have my clutch all done up (needed it for a while now) also have my fluids done, tune up. What about shocks/struts/break lines/gas lines. Any thoughts?

I'm not much of a mechanic, (like at all) but I would like to learn to do some of these things myself. So if you happen to know of a thread of How To's about any of these feel free to send them to me. (Yes, I will have some form of supervision) lol. Other than that I'll bring it to my mechanic, but I'd like to save as much money as possible.

Appreciate it!

If you haven't done struts/shocks and strut tower bushings it's past time. Also the front radius rod bushing
