1992 LX 5.0

I might be going to look at one of these and wanted to know what to look out for. It has 135,000 miles and has had the same owner for the past 16 years. Supposedly no rust or mechanical issues, basic bolt-ons. Any pointers?

If you can get under back of car and look at the torque boxes for any visible damage

What are the typical rust areas I should look for or anything else I should check out?

Door jams floor boards running boards along bottom of doors and i canter stress enough the the torque boxes where upper control arms meet body most other rust areas are very fixable but if torque boxes are ripping out its very bad means car has been hotroded a lot and possible body twist along with any number of issues.

Also the inner strut towers. Along the frame rails in the engine bay. Theynhave a tendency to rust out.
