    Hello! Im checking out this 98 cobra with an IRS from an 03 Cobra. It looks pretty sweet but is at 104k miles. Any recommendations for things to watchout for/get checked? I have been burned before so I'm going to take it to a shop for professional input. Thanks for any feedback!

    Check the motor mounts, when the clutch was replaced and the speedo gear drive those go out a lot but are really cheap for the gears and takes about 20 min to replace them.

    Thankyou! I ended up getting a different 98svt, straight rear axel but it has a short throw shifter and x pipe exhaust!
