Question on kernel upgrades

After a compile problem related to the fact that I'm trying to shoehorn a 
beta kernel (2.5.58) into lfs, I'm going to go back and play by the rules 
with the recommended stable kernel, 2.4.20.

If and when a new stable kernel is released, what else should I upgrade 
along with it?  Can I just upgrade the kernel and keep the glibc, gcc, 
lilo, etc. based on the current kernel headers?  Are there specific 
packages that should always be updated whenever I build a new kernel?  Or 
should I build a whole new LFS base from the start to ensure total 
integrity between kernel headers and package builds?
