I have inherited a 98 T/A With some rust that came from TX. I only now really got a good chance to take a look at it as I am changing the oil (and doing the skipt shift eliminator mod).
It looks as though the front suspension components, exhaust, and many of the Bolts throughout the underside of this car are rusted. Now that it is in AZ this car NEVER sees water but what suggestions would you all make so that I can make sure this car will last. It only has 18k mile on it currently.
Should I change out all the rusted bolts, exhaust and front suspension components immediately? Is this overkill?
Thanks from the desert!

relax... bolts rust. Its in their nature. High strength bolts arnt made out of stainless steel so they will always have some surface rust. Nothing to worry about
