Rear main leaking. Anything else to fix?

Heres the deal my rear main is leaking and a friend of mine has a shop who will do repair in the next week or two. Any recomendations on seals?
Or anything else I should fix or check while its in the air?
I have a 00 4x4 4.o a/t has 136k on it. Any help would be great
Thanks.

1) Are you sure it's the rear main? Many other potential leaks look the same. Check valve cover gasket, distributor gasket, and oil filter gasket prior..

2) Oil pump. They're cheap and if you've got the oil pan off, might as well do it.
