Puy it on some Jack-stands and see if there are any loose or dangling parts. Rust is an issue, so make sure that the A-arms, shocks and springs are properly secured. If there is structural damage to the any connection points, you have a 1800 lb paper weight, due to repair costs. Safety First! Have a spotter if you get under the car while it is up. Do not get under it if you only are using the car jack or are alone! Only jack it up on a flat surface. JB
