Not a huge deal, but the idler and tensioner pulleys on the AC/alternator belt get VERY noisey. I haven't seen one fall apart, but the noise would be enough for me to replace them.
The steering intermediate shaft u-joint tends to bind up causing a binding feeling when turning. Keep an eye on the power steering cooler as well. They are located behind the front bumper at the bottom of the radiator support. They tend to seep/leak, eventually causing pump damage if not fixed.
