Car Nearing 120k miles, what should be done

What needs to be replaced, or should have been replaced by this time? I'm looking for a list and the average cost of each thing. I dont have alot of cash, so I need to see what to save for

02 sensors. Check the suspension bushings and balljoints. Plug wires if they havent been changed before. I know theres others but thats all I can think of off hand. Other than that just keep racking up the miles

Timing chain if it has never had one replaced.
