    Hey! Watch it, Goose!

    Well, mine's finished. They didn't have the car that long. I can't find the receipt, or I'd list the time. It was the sway bar bushings. The replaced them and also noticed that the "left center bolts were de-threaded and damaged." They replaced them/that as well. Yeah, it's a big difference driving it around. Much quieter over the bumps.

    I felt that the alignment was way off because the truck was darting around the road over surface imperfections. It felt like both front wheels were toed-in. I don't know if it's just me, but so far, that seems to be less pronounced. Am I crazy, or does replacing those bushings and whatever damaged bolts those were help with tracking?

    Not sure what a left center bolt is (I suppose it would be like a Clinton bolt, an Obama bolt would be a hard left bolt). But my guess is the tech crossthreaded a bolt ptting it back on and got you a new one courtesy of LR.

    The sway bushing doesn't impact toe, but will make things toighter feeling down there.

    Ok - then I'm mistaken about KY jelly, thought it was the dealer. As the great actor, Steven Segal said in one of his great movies, assumption is the greatest of all f** ups.

    What are lower tables? You mean lower control arms?

    I'm not sure a slightly wonky alignment would cause this but couldn't rule it out if its really bad.

    Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight upwards.

    Re: Front end clunking

    Thanks for the link but I have a supercharged no one seems to sell struts for the S/C .... They just feel very bumpy like old worn out shocks... The funny part is after I fixed everything my suspension fault light stop coming on in red.. Now it comes on in yellow and it says to much lean in cornering ... Before I change my struts I'm going to do my drier fuse & software update this weekend before I dish out 3000$!!!! I won't lie I was very very close to just trading my car in for a 2007 Cadillac escalade... For a fair trade . But I decided to fix my baby....
