Exclamation Car Sat For 2 Years. Tips?

Basically car sat for 2 years and I am currently barely getting it up and running. Had some issues with the motor and life took over for the worst and wound up not getting any love and just sat in my garage. Now it is running I'm doing all of the fluid changes (oil, trans, brake, ps, etc.) in the next couple of days to get this sucker back on the road after its hiatus. We did a compression test and it all checks out and have been looking at the motor and everything seems in shape. Suspension ride seems like it has not degraded in any way either. Any suggestions on what to possibly check before going balls out again?

Do you know how much Ethanol was in the gas that was left in it? Ethanol bringing water in would be a potential concern. May be worth draining the tank and refilling with fresh fuel to be sure.
