How many miles are on it? And most importantly has a suspension refresh ever been done on the car?

Holy hell dude. Most of us would have had strokes at the 9 month mark. You are probably going to have to do an entire suspension refresh. Not as bad as it sounds. Check the stickies above on this sub forum, they will give you a good start on all you need to catch up on regarding maintenance!
