    Default New owner, older viper questions

    Found an 04 convertible with 45k miles and was instantly hooked! It is the "Cobra" I have wanted since I was sixteen. Found out that at 26k all four
    shocks were replaced. After I purchased it I found the jerking on rough roads was due to four worn suspension links. My question is this normal
    for the millage on the car? Seems to be in good shape overall. I have also read the cars are durable and will last. Thanks

    Vipers, like most stiff suspension sports cars, suck on rough roads.

    And yes, the Viper as a convertible is like a modern day Cobra.
    -You know Mr. Shelby was on the original design team for the Viper.
    Both cars are absolutely ridiculous. That's what makes them so fun.

    Watch out for cops.
