No, I am happy to say that it requires no suspension work, whereas everything regarding that end is new, plus lots of other things. The original owner had the car for about 217000, prior to the second owner before me. In spite of the fact that the two previous owners knew nothing about working on cars, the receipts that came with the vehicle indicates the car's history. This tells a story that they at least knew well enough to take it in for service whenever it was needed. I'm happy to say that also included oil changes and transmission flushes.
Most recently, it had gotten a radiator and tires, plus as a bonus, I'd even found a new radio antenna in a long tube in the hatch, plus an MpGuino hooked up to the dash. As for now, all it's going to need is a tune-up, which of course I can do, along with wheel bearings, brakes and exhaust which I can also do at school.
