      Looks pretty good! What exactly is "a slight clunk"?

      My guess is $1500-2000

        Not sure yet what the clunk is. It seems to be either the CV joint (boots look ok) or maybe Ball Joint/tie rod. I dont have it home yet, will let you know when it arrives what was wrong.

        NOPE (I didnt think I got that great of a deal) I (she) only paid $850...they had it listed for $995!!!

                  We are from the Rochester area. Yeah, Ill have to go through the oil change/maintenance thing with her. Sad thing is she will probably either ignore the oil change all together or bring it to a Valvoline type place. We will see. This will be good practice cause she has a sister who will be driving in 2 years then my own daughter 6 years from now.

                  AFA: Window motors, thats EXACTLY what I was thinking!! Manual windows means ONE LESS GM headache.

                    I must be the only one but I have about half adozen cars that had manual "armstrong" windows seize and act up and break, but only a couple power Windows ever have an issue. (This is out of about 30 gm cars)

                        Did a little cleaning on it last night...pictures are so much of a pain to post here though I probably wont be posting many. Hate going to a different site to upload then copy and paste.

                          It's a little tedious for sure, but can be done relatively quickly. Try using http://postimage.org/
                          You can upload all the pics you want a once, and then get the URL.
