Forgive me if these are common problems, its all new to me. :)

First, wet around the steering shaft. Is this something I should repair, or is it common on Cobra's?



Next, broken motor mount. Im not surprised, the drivers side was already replaced.



Good thing I had these laying around:



Next, lower control arm bushings.... The front bushings do not seem right to me. Do they commonly wear out? I was gonna pull the springs tonight to cut them, but Id like to repair/upgrade/leave them alone all at the same time. Please give me your input:




Thanks in advance :biggthump

zack, I haven't seen any leaking steering racks. I'm sure you could get a used unit somewhere for cheap. Its the the time to change it if the motor is out.

The lower control arm bushing look normal

Ill give that a whirl first before I go replacing entire assembloes.
