I would wire brush it and paint it like you said. But those aren't really the spots that rust the first. I would be more concerned with what is going on in the more typical spots.

I see no problem with the tie rods.

The only thing to align is toe which does not affect pulling left and right. You can easily adjust toe yourself. There's no need to go to a shop.

The only way to get the right tension on a belt that does not have an automatic tensioner (like the 97) is with a tension tool. Rule of thumb deflection numbers don't work because it matters between...

I don't see how it could be the transfer case. The transfer case is either engaged or not, and that isn't going to change just from stopping and starting. I could certainly see a transmission seeming...

If those wires are melted (is it one wire or multiple?) from the use of the lights then the previous owner must have been using power off of another circuit because those are factory wires. This is...

You should check for spark.

There is no transmission fluid level sensor.
