This revived '88 is doing well. It runs like new, the A/C works, etc. It now has new shocks and struts, urethane throughout the rear suspension, and about 1,493,503 nuts, bolts, and screws have been retorqued or at least tightened.
HOWEVER, it's noisy. There are rattles and clicks from every direction including the dashboard, but the noisiest part of the car is the front suspension. When the car goes over a bump, there's a brittle metallic sound. I did not put urethane up front - the original rubber seemed ok, (but it is 40,000 miles and 26 years old).
Use your hand and hit the coolant pipes under the foot area. Mine had one that hit the frame and made a terrible noise. Finally found it one day but hitting everything with my hand when under it one winter. What a joy to finally find that one. I put a clamp and piece of rubber on the passenger side pipe where it turns towards the middle under the foot area.
