2010 Camaro v6 rear toe rod bushing bolts

i was just wondering when the dealership does an alingment do they need to lossen the rear toe rod bushing bolts?

i ask because i went to a Chevy Dealer to have a 4 wheel alingment because my front driver tire was feathering on the outside bad. i noticed driving it a few days later it was driving weird going into turns or breaking hard at 65 mph.

its been like 2 months driving like this and today i finally got the chance to put the camaro up on the jack. The first thing i noticed was i could move the rear drivers side in and out. i then looked at all the bolts and sure enough the toe rod bushing bolt was loose that i cud untread it with my fingers. def not tight or 103 lbs torqued.

dont wanna make a big stink until i can figure out if the dealership left it loose

Yep sounds like it was not torqued down properly. You may have a hard time getting them to own up to it after 2 months time though.

Best regards,

i believe there is a warranty on their work they do. i prob only put a few thousand miles on it before i really started to notice it.

going to call mgr down at herb connolly chevy because thats crazy they didnt torque it. plus its suppose to be 103lbs torqued.
