Took my '93 wagon in today for her annual safety inspection and threw in an oil change. Figured I would ask them to take a look at her while she was lifted as well to see what work might need to be done to keep her in tip top shape. Well, I opened Pandora's box. Turns out my steering rack needs replacing, I need to replace a head lamp and tail lamp assembly, the emergency brake was shot, and there is something wrong with the rear end that even the mechanic couldn't figure out. The rear end is making noise, but neither they nor I could put a finger on it, so they are replacing some worn bushings, and we will just have start fixing things until the noise goes away. So, my safety inspection and oil change is now worth $1500, estimated of course.
