Tires are in order and I think shocks...any suggestions for good price performance on shocks?
Doesn't look like she's ever towed anything, and just a little rust on the lower quarter panels. What's the best way to treat that little bit of rust that's showing up?
People on this forum have had good experience with the Monroe Sensatrac shocks.You can sometimes find them on sale too just have to look.
Not sure about the low PS fluid or tie rod boot hopefully someone else can chime in and help you out there.
As for the rust... sand to remove it all, maybe a little body filler, sand again then primer and some touch up paint. Should be able to find some good how to articles online.
Not sure if you noticed, but in your photos your truck is missing its lower valence. (Plastic thing that goes under the front bumper)
