i have a 1972 2002, which is in reasonably good shape. there is a bad problem with the steering tho. it is extremely hard to turn the wheel at slow speeds, and while it is easier at driving speeds, there is a lot of play in the wheel.
i have completely rebuilt the front end, which did not help the problem. i did notice, however, that when the front end is up on jacks and unloaded, the steering is smooth and easy thru the complete range, but still with some play in the wheel.
