I just bought mine 5 months ago and I'm hoping to put her on the road this weekend, albeit most of the time was waiting to sell my previous car to swap the tag and finance my suspension & steering maintenance/replacement.
So so far I have...
fixed the contacts on the AC control unit
Replaced the entire stereo system, making custom boxes since when I looked at mine I found speakers screwed to wood screwed to the car. It was amazing how many screws I have found missing.
The passenger side window control kept wanting to pop out.
Repaired the flip door over the cup holders.
Replaced the shift boot and reverse lockout deal under the shift knob.
Replaced all four corner bulb sockets and bulbs.
Right under the hood light had a break in the power wire I got to find and fix.
My ECM bracket was all broken up.
When I removed the battery I noticed that it is designed to direct water toward the frame and sure enough there was lots of pealed paint and rust on the frame. I ended up breaking the heads off the two bolts on top of the battery tray due to the rust.
I did some preventative repair to my tail light where the screws hold them in. The posts were clearly cracking up and on their way to failing.
Replaced my hoses for my cruise control as they were shot, and the previous owner had an incorrect two way valve on the vacuum line, so that was replaced.
All of my ball joints, tie rod ends, and bushings were shot, so those have been replaced.
Also my transverse springs and shocks.
Flushed the brake fluid, changed the brakes.
There is probably more I'm not thinking about at the moment.
Mine is a '95 with 185K. Yours probably needs the suspension rubber changed due to lack of use and age. Rubber needs movement to keep their lubricants moving through them.
