Give it a tune up. Cap, rotor, plugs, plug, wires, air filter, crankcase filter, PCV valve and change the oil. Check the battery acid levels it has pop top covers. Load test the battery. Chech the alternator for proper voltage output. Have the starter tested to make sure its ok. Check ALL wires and connections from the battery, alternator, starter and fuse box. Make sure they're tight, clean and have no corrosion on them.

TransAm77 is right, especially about the wiring, my EB Bronco was always loosing grounds, tail lights, headlights, engine grounds and the starter is a joke, I finally had one custom built at a local starter shop and it was still working when I sold it. Oil pumps are another concern, it would work great cold but when it warmed up the bypass valve relieve too much pressure, replaced the pump and that cured that. As far as performance, I'd get a reprogramming device for the ECM, put a catback exhaust system on it and a cold air package. Thats about it unless you want to dive into the engine.

Noise - check your power steering fluid level. As far as loose check your tie rod ends(inner and outer), idler and pitman arms and drag link.
