At 100K you have gotten your money out of those parts. THAT is
what preventive maintenance is all about. Much easier to change
them now than when the give out and leave you stranded.

I have 212k miles on my '92 Grand Marquis and I only replace what's
broken. I take it regularly cross country on 3000 mile round trips from
Texas to Florida. Just ensure that your fluids have been properly
serviced and you should be good to go. I only had to replace a noisy
alternator once and also a noisy catalytic convertor on separate trips.
Much less expensive than trying to replace everything that "might" go
wrong. Remember, every time you have your car serviced, there is a
definite possibility of something else being affected negatively.
Perhaps if you are the kind that buys rebuilt parts. What makes
you believe a new Ford alternator with a 12mo/12mi warranty will
not last just as long as the original when it too was new?
Sounds a bit silly to me to believe other wise ;)
