I've recently purchased a 2001 Cobra w/137,000 on it. It was a great price and I bought it as a toy, not a daily driver. The engine still feels plenty strong...but definatly needs some suspension and steering work. (Bushings, tie rod ends, shocks, struts..) I'm an ok-enough mechanic to tackle these issues by myself but, I'm asking for opinions as to where I should start first? What will make the most diff as far as the little rattles over bumps and trailing the road grooves...thanks in advance that would be kind enough to reply.

I moved this to a forum to get you some suggestions, I will tell you what I do when in this position, I just rebuild the whole thing, shocks/struts, control arms, steering rack and the brakes, some things may not need replacing/rebuilding but when your done your good for a long time.
once and done.
