My brother and i will be looking at a 98 300ex today, and I'm just looking to see if there are any common problems or trouble areas to look for.
Any info you can provide would be great.
Thanks.

Other than the normal stuff, check the axle bearing carrier. A lot of times, the bearings will be bad.

Yeah like Helmut said! I didn't see that the 1/2 of the adjuster for the rear carrier bearing was cracked off and the bearings were bad! It was to late because I didn't see it until I had bought it and was loading onto my truck!

Agree^^^^ also check the front end for tie rod play. but everything is pretty much trivial on the 300EX they are a great versatile machine.
