That clunk could also be the u-joint on the steering shaft. My daughter's 62 clunks there, even with new TREs. 62s seem to rust a lot less than 60. I have heard the shifter bushings are easily replaced...mine are sitting in the to-do box for the 62. Steve and I can probable help with an ac recharge if that is your issue there. I have a set of OME shocks I don't need if that looks like something that needs attention. But those air pumps for the 62 are expensive unless you can find a good used one.

I guess it all comes down to price. I paid 1600 for mine (about 210K) and it had no significant rust, but just about everything was worn out (except for the major powertrain items which seem to be chugging along nicely after some much-needed deferred maintenance issues. But give em a little much-needed love, and those 62s are great! My daughter loves hers...
