Im leaking coolant out of the head gasket. When I go to replace it what else should I change/replace? Im almost at 120,000miles so I was going to have the timing belt does as well, is there anything I should consider doing?

All of the above, and any other normal wear bits you'll have to pull in the process. Here's a link that gives some insight into the whole timing process, if you plan to do the timing belt yourself, or even if you have someone else do it.

I just got mine back from the local ford dealership after bringing it in for a new timing belt, pulleys, and drive belt, and while the tech had it apart, I bought some new plugs for it, and had the valve cover sandblasted and repainted.

Of course, this could be just the excuse you need to get some performance bits too, "while I'm at it." [:D]

Motor mount should b changed when you do timing belt but make sure you get the svt specific one as they are different from the other focus mounts.

I'm not so sure on this. But defiantly check it out.
