Chetbaker-

Does this $3000 25 year old car have....

New lower ball joints ?
New Upper ball joints/arms?
New Idler arm?
New tie rods?
New Steering damper?
New center link?
New brake hoses?
New flex discs?
New center support bearing?
New oil cooler hoses?
New rear subframe bushings?
New diff mount?
New motor , er.. engine/tranny mounts?

etc etc

I know PEH would say if it ain't broke, don't fix it, but by now, believe me, ITS BROKE or if it's not, its going to break when you don't expect it. That is, unless its been replaced and documented. If nothing else, you can ask the seller and imply that its needs to be done.
