I recently bought a 85 380Se and within 2 weeks of reading the posts here have saved about $1000(DIY)!Car operates beautifully. Now I get to tackle the big one. The front end obviously needs work. When I go over small bumps at crawling speeds, like pulling in the driveway, the front end clunks. Seems to be always on the left side. Also when I apply the brakes like putting the car in drive and pump the brakes, I can feel the brakes clunk. Like I said I really believe most of the parts should be replaced. Is all this something I should just give to a mechanic or is it something I can do myself. Any ideas on costs at the shop? With what I paid for this car and what I've already saved, will $1000 do the trick?
