My Ride: '02 325XI
325 XI CV Joint/Axle replacement

I have an '02 325XI with 165k on it, my car's front cv boots have been cracked for some time now, leading to joint/axle failure. I'm going to order the remanufactured axles through rockauto, as I can see that the FCP brand axles are crap. Anyway, couple questions. Is there anything else you guys would recommend doing while under the car with the axles off? I read that being I have an XI, the front control arms aren't as problematic as the RWD E46's. Any bushings, wheel bearings, hubs, anything like that that's a common problem or wear part on our cars? Also, I read that the grease for the inner boot is different than the outter boot - anyone know where to get the proper grease for it? Thanks a ton for your help in advance, idk what I'd do without this forum.
