Re: I THINK I have FINALLY found my SHORT BUS! :D

I wouldn't worry about buying it. Mine is a 1990 and I had to change a few sensors and give it a tune-up last year. The only concern for me is the cost of towing if it breaks down since I haul with it so I pay for towing insurance since it's pretty cheap. Parts for it are readily available since they made that model van until the late 90's and I'm sure the suspension/engine parts were used even more recently than that. A cheap investment would be a Chilton's manual or similar DIY manual and read a lot on how to diagnose and cure problems yourself. It's not as tough as it seems if you are brave enough to jump in with both feet. Good luck and post pictures soon.

Re: I think I've finally found my short bus!

As far as your bus leaning to the left, it could be bad body mounts (easy fix), or a bad front suspension. Or, it could just be a factory defect. In the mid 90's, Chevy did the same thing to the S-10. A defect or miscalculation in the frames made the truck lean a bit to the left. I have a 96 S-10 and it's always leaned to the left. I call it my "gangsta lean". Nothing you can do to fix it. If it drives straight down the road, I wouldn't worry about it.
