911 front ends

Suspension and Steering

Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1987; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 100,000;

I am interested in buying an 87-89 911. I have test driven 3 of them ranging from 100k miles to 126k miles. All three had front ends that seemed to cause a lot of jerking in the steering wheel. I noticed on all three that there was inside tire wear on the front tires and they all drifted hard to the right. So my question is, is the jerking front end normal on this car, what can I do to fix that once purchased, and are these cars impossible to keep aligned? Since the wheel sizes are not the same between front and back I am concerned that a normal rotation of tires cannot take place once the wear occurs, thus only making the rough ride worse over a period of time. I am new on all of this but at 48 years old know that a bad front end can take the joy of a ride real fast. Thank you.
