spark plug & other parts

having my mechanic replace my spark plugs, what other parts would you replace in that area? I would rather have the parts available before he starts.
TIA

Can you believe the stealership wants 1.5 hours to replace the plugs.

Hi,

I'd just go with the Plugs, but be mindful of leaky Spark Plug Tubes. Thexse use two different sized 'O' rings on either end. I wouldn't bother picking them up ahead of time because in all likelyhood, they'll be OK. Just be sure he runs a finger or rag in the tubes to see if any Oil comes out on it...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
