As expected, the dealer test drove the car, followed TSB P10197A, torqued all suspension components, and suggested I bring it in again if the issue does not resolve itself.
Interestingly, the front end [I]did[I] actually feel tighter with much less clunk/loose steering over bumps, or slight shimmy on hard braking.
I'm more concerned it would feel better after torquing...why would it not come properly torqued from the factory???
I ensured all issues were documented before I install the Hotchkis springs next week.
If anyone else has had a similar experience before and it somehow got resolved, I'd give my dealer's left nut to know. Thanks.
