After a few years of storage the first thing I would do is to take the whole car apart.
Then I would clean out all the sealed bearings (with the seals off) using motorspray and re lubricate them using a ball bearing oil.
Then I would thoroughly clean all thrust bearings and differentials and re lubricate the diffs and thrust bearings using good quality diff grease.
Then I would also dismantle the shocks, clean them out thoroughly and rebuild them with new shock oil.

When the whole car is taken apart I would of course also clean out gravel, dust and other debris from all other parts.

Hope this will get you started.
