On the '84 5KS, it seems like there is ALWAYS something that needs
changing on the front suspension. BTDT tooo many times.
Most probable cause is either the front balljoints or the
bushings on the A-arm.

Sounds clutch cylinders are on the way out.  Change them before they
go altogether, as the pedal bottoms out and won't come back up if you
ignore it too long. BTDT
