When I climb under to have a look, it all appears to be in excellent shape. Zero rust, but covered in the typical road dirt/dust. I do have a bit of a shake/shimmy at over 65 MPH, which I find annoying. The car has just over 55,000 miles on it.

To keep all the info in one place, here are some other threads I've found...
