Getting out of DSM(s) but want to keep any relevant parts for my GVR-4

I have a few 1g DSM(s) laying around (1gb FWD and 1gb AWD) that I am going to part out and get rid of. Before getting rid of them I want to make sure that I am not missing anything that would work on my GVR-4.

I know that there an infinite amount of parts that won't and will interchange but I want to make sure that I don't forget anything that could come in handy at a later date. Want to get whatever I can since I got burnt pretty bad on one of the DSM(s) and I am trying to reduce my losses.

I know that the list will be subjective since you don't know what each of the vehicles has or doesn't have.

Some things that come to mind are:

4-bolt rear
Cylinder head
6 bolt bottom end
Windshield Washer Bottle...(for more intake room)
Mishimoto Radiator (yes I know that some fab work will be required along with 1g thermo housing)
Door switches
Speedo cables
Shifter
ECU
Black top CAS
FWD lowering springs on KYB struts
Cross drilled and slotted rotors (not so sure I'd move over used stuff but better than my rusty stockers at this point)
Pedal Covers
Coil Pack
Ignition Module
Throttle Body
Fuel Pumps (Do a quick check to see if aftermarket)
Alternators
PS Pump (not sure if is the same as a GVR4)

Am I missing anything? Feel like I am.

Thanks.

Fuses, relays, resistors, noise condensers, harnesses that connect and seal properly with at least 6" pigtails on each side. If it's awd the rear spindles. The driveshaft is different, but 2 out of 3 sections are the same. Front and rear subframes. Calipers, caliper brackets, e-brake cable holders. ABS sensors if you still have ABS.

Thanks for that...great points! In part, so many degraded harnesses on my GVR4.

For sure. I buy, build and part a lot of 1gs so that is kinda my list. Not sure if it was on your list, but front axles and half shaft.

They weren't but thanks! Half shaft?

Oh and DSM steering wheel. I think they are a bit smaller so would probably weigh less but might block my view of the instrument cluster.

Also front and rear knuckles with hubs if you are looking to go 5-lug.

Quoting 4dr_vr4:

The half shaft is the solid shaft that gets bolted to the engine on the driver's side. The steering wheel fits good and looks good to boot.
