Vehicle was purchased for $700 with known issues largely related to suspension. Replaced both front control arms, swaybar links, and bushings. Replaced sway bar links and bushings Replaced rear trailing arm bushings. Section of rear brake line replaced. Repaired front exhaust pipe (welded on a new flange and refastened with a new spring kit). U-joints in drive shaft had worn, causing vibration under heavier acceleration. Very typical for mileage. For now, drive shaft has been removed and vehicle is being driven solely as FWD. May repair drive shaft in future and re-install.
