Recently acquired a '97 Formula w/6sp. This is my first F-body as I owned a couple 5.0's previously.

The car is pretty clean and basically stock other than Flowmaster exhaust and a Hurst shifter.

1. I'm curious as to what Temp these cars typically run at during normal driving? It's early spring here in KS but it will be hot as hell before too long. Seems like sitting at the stop light idling the car runs about 215-220 but much cooler down the road, around 180. Is this typical? Keep in mind I have no idea what thermostat is in the car nor do I know what is supposed to be in it.

2. When I turn left I get a loud squeaking/screeching sound from the drivers side rear. Almost sounds like a caliper or something hanging up but I'm not sure?

3. The car is right at 100k miles. I don't have an owners manual or any literature in the car. Are there any type of 100k mile service actions that I need to be aware of on the car? I thinks its probably due for some suspension work, shocks/struts, any recommendations?
