1997 Disco Front end upgrade

This is kind of similiar to another recent thread but there's a twist.
After doing the rear axle from a 97 disco (huge improvement)
I'm getting ready to do the front.
My front axle, 10 spline,25 year old, minor issues 70,000 miles would come out and a
100,000+ Disco 24spline would go in.
I assume this a good good Idea?
And I wonder what I should do, as far as maintenance and upgrades.
I will do all the bushings, tie-rods ends and steering thingy.
As far as everything else, bearings, seals, etc, change them, or go with the "if it aint broke"?

change it while you have it out, imagine how much easier it is to do on you shop floor than crawling under the truck, besides it will take 1/4 the time to do it. my opinion.

Not a real upgrade IMHO.
