Do I Really Need This Work?

I took my car in for an oil change today and the dealer recommended that I have the following work done:
Power Steering Flush, Coolant Service and Rear Differential Service. Car has 100 K miles and has been well maintained. Do I really need this work?

    Probably not a bad idea if none of this has ever been done. Certainly the coolant, no question

    Replace the spark plugs to if they are still the original. Has the tranny fluid been changed yet?

    Yes, good idea---spark plugs. And a brake fluid flush if that's never been done.

    100K is a major milestone in a car, about 1/2 life, so if you're planning to keep the car for the next few years, this is a good investment.
