W201 Shock/Strut replacement

I have a 1991 190E 2.3 with 61K miles. Although the mileage is relatively low, I feel it is time to replace the suspension. The rear is saging a bit, and the car creaks/bounces a fair amount on bumps. The front is a soft and has a "vague" feel.

I think I will be going with the Bilsteins. As I have been pricing them, I am wondering what other parts I may need to be replacing in addition to the strut/shock? I have noticed a variety of related items from boots to shims to mounts available. I am wondering what have most folks typically replaced in doing the suspension replacement?

Thanks- Jonathan
