Original suspension on our ‘12 Camry with 198,000 miles.
Going to get KYB quick struts from Rock Auto.
Are there any other suspension components that should be replaced at the same time if not rusty and no problems noted?

Bushings. All of them.

Tie rod ends (if not the tie rods themselves)

You may need new sway bar links if they attach to the strut. A lot of times, they like to freeze on there, so you have to cut the old one off. The best ones to get are Sankei/555 and Proforged

KYB struts-plus (with $100 MIR) and pro-forge sway bar links installed at all 4 corners.
ENORMOUS improvement in ride and handling.
