Default new car, new problems..


I've got a T16 for sale on here as I've moved to the US and guess what, I am after another 900 while I'm here...

I've seen one and there's a few problems I'd like to query with you folks before committing.

The rear shocks, I'm told will need replaced fairly shortly, what's the work/cost involved with that and what other items are prone to be affected or should be replaced at the same time ?

Clutch and shifter casing were replaced some time ago (within 5 years) is there potentially any clutch issues looming ? (approx 100k miles).

Also another question, if the engine runs ok at idle and as soon as you bring it up over an idle the car splutters and stalls and then runs smooth back at idle - any suggestions as to the problem ?
(have had the HT leads and distributor and rotor arm all cleaned and checked).

Few questions in there - appreciate any info..
