Also take a look at the front end suspension rubber. It will likely be old and cracked, but that's just one more haggling point. Also bounce the car by pressing on the front bumper and listen for squeaks.

You should also take a look at the condition of the oil cooler lines and engine mount rubber. These last items will likely need replacement, and it is easiest to do them at the same time. I had to do them on my "new" '82 SD.
