I have had the same problem with my 2SS from day one. I hope GM will come up with a solution soon.

The challenges with doing this if everything is too tight, is the possibility of breaking the strut shaft. That assembly has to be able to move when you make a turn.

I have been after GM Customer Service for several mionths, getting nowhere with GM Double-speak and non-answers, until last Thursday when a rep from GM called and said the had been in touch with Tech Services. They do not have a "fix" yet, and would not comment whether they have heard from others about this p[roblem. The good (?) news is that they offered to send me a letter of component coverage, basically extending my 3yr / 36,000 mi warranty to cover any issues relating to the
Suspension up to a total of 60 months from the purchase date, or 75k miles from current mileage ( 5k now)...... At least it is something! I am waiting to see what this letter says. I will posty again when I get it.

I rthink we all should demand at least this response from GM- to stand behind their product, until they recognize the problem exists, and re-engineer to correct it.

Thanks for continuing to share your experiences with this annoying problem.

The G8 guys have the same issue. It's cause they have piece of crap bushings on these cars. I had my car in the dealer a week ago cause one of them collapsed. GM fixed it...

:( Me too!

For me it has been one place, a right hand curve in the road, and the asphalt has been unevenly patched several times, and if I hit it just right, the noise is in the driver's side front, which is where the uneven road surface is. I described it to my husband, and he asked if it felt kind of like it was bottoming out on that side--and that is really a good description of how it feels and sounds, though it's not a pot hole, more of an unevenly raised surface. So far it's only been on that one road bump that it happens.

Does anyone have a copy of a service bulletin to post. Most dealers are not as informed, it's nice to give the copy to get the work done right away. Unless they have a bulletin all they do is just check the tightness.

Just like the spoiler bulletin. Thanks ahead of time.

The noise is in the front on my car - BOTH SIDES... at any small bump or dip in the road surface... If you have ever driven a car with bad struts, you will know the sound.
I have received the Component coverage letter which gives warranty coverage beyond the 36 month / 36k miles bumper to bumper. However, it id not list the struts specificall as being covered, although it did specifically include a list of about 10 other parts. I have called GM Customer Service again and left a message for the Disreict Rep. that I want the strust to be included and a new letter sent. I will post when I get it.

I can share the text of the letter I received, if anyone wants to e-mail me directly.
kencarguy@msn.com.

By the way- What is the TSB about the spoiler? Can someone give me that info?

THanks!

Guys check the G8 forums for the TSB's, Had to take my G8 back 6 times and to the point that the steering wheel was shaking severely due to bushing failure on the front control arms. Had to have all 4 replaced....so far that annoying sound and all the other issues have gone away.

Like I said in my original post, the rental had 5000 miles on it and it had this problem. It would awful lame if the bushings are failing under 5000 miles. Guess when I change the oil I change the control arm bushings. :(

This issue is the ONLY thing holding me back from placing my order for a 5th Gen.

Thumbs down new shocks still popping

Well they finally got my new shocks and installed. BUT still pops just the same. It has to be something else. Somebody tell me what we have to do to get this fixed right or will we have to live with the popping forever?

I went through the same thing, first they told me the tires need rotated....didnt help, then they said the tires were out of balance....no help (bought new tires)...no help, then got so it would make a loud grinding noise when I turned the wheel, at that point I threw such a fit they came and got it on a roll back....said they coulndnt find anything wrong. At that point took to another dealer who without even looking at the car, proclaimed that it was brake rotors, got into a cussing match with him, until the service manager came out and I showed him that you could move the front wheel by grabbing it and giving it a good yank......So they finally put it up on a rack, and were nice enough to tell me that they had no idea how Id even made the 30 mile trip to get there. My car was parked and deemed by the mechanic as unsafe to drive. So there it sat waiting on ball joints, bushings and all 4 control arms for almost 5 weeks due to a shortage of parts.......go figure......may not be the same issue on the camaro but seeing as they are on the same platform I suspect that this is the issue on them as well

Maybe someone can take this "problem" to CF5 and ask Scott about it.
