I'm currently focused on fixing the rough idle/CEL and getting the suspension redone. Beyond that we'll see.
Belts wouldn't prohibit me from purchasing a car, but I'd want to know their condition before driving off with it. $30 and a couple hours can fix worn belts.

I highly recommend the following for suspension:

FCABs
FCAs
Steering guibo
Tierods
RTABs

Freshened my car right up. Every one of these was completely shot on my 2004 with 67k miles.
