Since it's been lowered and the bushings are likely original, the clunkiness is exacerbated. The engine almost dying is probably a vacuum leak, It did that when I had it, just let off slowly and the engine speed won't dip.

It never had that loud of a ticking noise when I had it.
Thanks. I think the ticking is exhaust related. Pushing the tailpipe with my foot makes it tick faster for a few seconds.
