Spring Tune up list HELP

Might be a little early... but i was wondering what i should do for spring for tuning up my focus or possibly some parts i might want to change out.

My plan was to do an antifreeze flush, new coil wires, spark plugs, fuel filter, PCV valve. Already had timing belt changed at 140k so im fine there. Anything else i should look into? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Tack on a brake fluid flush & possible swap out the brake lines for SS one.

Tundrafoci - defiantly, pads are getting close might want to go with a new front brake set. Any recommendations?

Felixthecat- I already have stainless steel brake lines if that's what you mean???

I use Baer's Matrix pads, work great for me, needs a touch warm up in the winter, one or two stops & they take heat pretty good.

centric blanks for the rotors. They work great. I've heard Hawk pads are good. I'm still running oem svt pads....I should've done something with less dust but they work well enough

How about using Baer's eradispeed svt rotors? I use Baer's 2 piece rotors in the front & was late on getting their 12'' rear brake setup, so I went w/ 11.75'' Wilwoods 2 piece rotors for the rear using the oem calipers.

Well I'm on stock drums in the rear of my focus. Wouldn't that be an over kill for the front going with svt brakes since there larger?

No as most of the braking is done by the front via weight transfer.
