Did I show you how badly bent the LCA's were at the end links before the before we put in the weld in tabs? Well, we still have to weld them. They are bolted for now. But, look how much they bent. I looked for a straight edge so you could see how much they bowed in. An allen wrench did the job fine to show the curve. I put the tab on top just to show...it wasn't going on w/out some bending back of the tab in place where it should have been first.

Those weld in's are going to keep that tab from breaking for sure...

Been hearing a thunk for almost a year the same day the dealer changed my half axles. Been back to the dealer about 4 times trying to find it. They replaced the rear rotors and pads at my cost obviously and issue still remained. They thought it was the issue.

Yesterday I heard a loud snap noise and looked under the car after work. Funny how the noise I was experiencing when coming to stop totally disappeared. I think the guy working on my car to replace the axles did not tighten up the bolt enough, so that is why I immediately was hearing a thunk noise when coming to a stop 80% of the time.

So this is what Pink's look like. It's an early build car. Not sure if we have to worry about it yet. But they don't look that bad.

Ya, I went with Pete's weld on tab. Solid as a rock. I'd suggest the new arms and bar. The current designs is just bush.

This happened to me a while ago. It's an easy fix and can be made stronger than stock at almost no cost. You can see what I did in my build thread on pg 6

The best course of action is to buy the ZL1 / 1LE rear lower control arms, 28mm rear bar and drop links. The geometry is vastly superior to the old inboard mount rear sway bar.

Yup. Pete is right.

Just don't use those end links and bypass that control arm tab all together.

Order an outboard bar. Hopefully you don't get older LCAs. The new ones have the tabs but also have the set up holes and relocated support member so the outboard bar can be used.

I installed the FE4 LCAs and upgraded to the BMR sway-bar for the 1LE -- didn't want to experience this on my own 2011 2SS...
