    Default Any Updates on the dreaded Clunk and a Better LCA - ?

    Well its time for me to replace my Front LCA's on my 88k G* GT ( got the wheel Clunk and lots of movement(dangerous amount)

    I have been researching options on the boards - but still not sure -because it appears the revised GM kit is discontinued?

    can I still get Gm to replace the control arms at a dealership since I'm under 100K
    or is there a great aftermarket part that can fix this problem from repeating?

    Hopefully one of you guys has dealt with this kinda recently and can tell me my latest options and
    if you had LCA's fixed in MD or DE any good Dealerships you recommend that might say yes to fixing this?

    Thanks, Any Suggestions or Comments are Appreciated

    The special coverage adjustment #15289 states that the LCA is covered for 10 years or 120,000 miles (193,000 km) from the in service date of the car. (Regardless of ownership)

    I've not heard of anyone having issues with the newer part, but it IS a wear part and WILL go bad with normal use. SuperPro makes arms as well. Available at BMR.

    2009.5 MSM GXP 500ish N/A RWHP. Mods include but aren't limited to: Texas Speed 418 (6.8L) fully forged held together with ARP from top to bottom, PRC 255cc heads, Rick Crawford intake plenum, TB port, polish and tune, Roto-Fab 102mm CAI w/LS7 MAF, Kooks 1-7/8" headers wrapped with DEI, Corsa catless system, Circle D 3200 Stall, 3.45 final drive, BMR's complete street bushing kit and sway bars, Eibach Pro Kit, G-Force Axles, running on staggered VMR 710's with Bridgestone RE11 rubber. HSV triple gauge pack with Calais smokers kit mod, V6 tails, debadge/rebadge, V6 door handles, AU black door trim, Maverick Man under hood strut covers, & washer and bolt kit, fully corrected paint thanks to Adams Polishes and my hard work. Built with reliability in mind with some power for those times when you need to pass or go over a big hill. Just a poser, not a racer!
