If you see a 98-04 Cadillac STS, it could be worth your while to pull the strut tower brace, as well as the front and rear swaybars.

If you can get the front calipers off an 98-02 F-body in good shape, at a good price it could also be worth it.

Other stuff you might want to consider getting as spares would be Riviera outside mirrors if you have self-dimming units. Sooner or later they are going to go "green" on you.

Also a maf sensor from an LQ4 motor will sell on clubgp. As will some of the northstar TB's.
For riv parts: any center caps in good shape will sell. wheel trim in A+ condition will find a buyer, and so will some of the fragile small parts inside.

I personally dont need anything, just giving you a heads up on what people look for most often.
