News from the dealer

So, this week just got really expensive, and I haven't even left for Topeka yet! $4-500 for the St. Louis dealer, plus $$ to get the rear control arms replaced, though I am going to have the control arms replaced by Superior Chevy out in Meriam Kansas because they can do it Thursday morning and they are SCCA Folk, I trust them way more than the local guys to get me corrected properly.

A big thanks to Jeff Kopp out there at Superior for helping me out. I'll post more later after I get over the fact that I'm going to be dropping another $2k into John's car! :)

so what exactly was the diagnosis? Ive had my car 7 years, 99% autocross, it probably has at least 5x the amount of runs and still have the same rear control arms.

According to the local dealer the rear bushings are worn out and need replaced. I'm hoping that Superior will be able to confirm that or find something else Thursday morning.

That is pretty wild. Control Arm bushing? Any hint how it failed? Tear? Crack? Both bushing or only one? I'm sure the T1 guys flog their cars more than you. At least you are getting it fixed.
