Axle and prop shaft seals would be good to do while the transmission is out. On most cars the transmission input shaft seal is recommended, but that's not changeable on this transmission without opening up the transmission case.

Given that you have to pull the engine out to do this job, I'd consider doing a timing belt, cam/crank seals, and replacing the "hoses from hell". All of that is so much easier to access with the engine out of the car.

You don't have to pull the engine.. It just takes some finesse. I just did mine just change out your rear main and put In a good hassle free clutch. Also take out the control are it frees up some space. It still sucks either way.
