I guess it could be worse if I didn't check the car at all :banghead:

Time to tighten up the bolts a little more there brando? Oh well, least you caught it before it backed all the way out. I didn't notice I had a broken endlink until the dealer noticed it when the car was in for service. First time I've ever heard of someone shearing through a spring steel endlink before :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Well, I can't get the bolt to line up. Any suggestion from anyone?
The dealership that I know the mechs are too busy today so I'm awaiting some parts right now and hopefully I can get some how fix this before heading out to Red Deer.

Are you sure the bolt isn't stripped?

:dunno: Not sure. I can't pull the bolt out right now. That's where I'm waiting for parts - new bolt and washer nut. I'm going to try again with the second jack to help align...

Funny thing is last time I recall using locktite on the bolt so... I'll fear for the worst I guess.

Well if you can't pull the bolt out that's probably a good sign, and it probably didn't break. Try using a lot of WD40 or some sort of penatrant on it, may help out things a little. Good luck!

Hope it didn't get bent or anything... let us know what you find!
