Default Parts and consumables needed on the long run

Hi everyone.

Eventhough I live in Japan, parts for a hardbody are extremely hard to find. Most trucks were shipped to other asian countries, so there's nothing on the scrapyards. Therefore, I either have to buy OEM, which are very difficult to get nowadays, or import used ones from abroad (ironic).

My question is, which parts and consumables are bound to break or wear out in the long run?

I'm trying to gather as many parts as I can before something breaks, because this month was a nightmare to find the leaf spring's damper, which was needed to pass the annual car inspection. Had to buy a damper from a different car, get a new steel mount made and weld to that damper.

So far, replaced the clutch, control arm bushings, sway bar bushings and front shocks.
