VE SS
hi guys i have recently purchased a ve ss i have had it back for several warranty issues incl rear main, radiator and sway bar bushes. I have recently taken it back again with a rattle in the fron suspension they replaced the spring insulators.... so they say..... but the noise is still there and the steering is now wierd. The car runs out of warranty in two weeks and i want to know if anyone has had the same problem...... Any ideas or experience in this problem ?????

There's a bunch of things that can cause it - but you've had most of them replaced already. What's left seems to be control arm bushes (had that on mine) and strut tops (also had that). Mine has also had the sway bar bushes replaced. Spring insulators is one of the common issues as well - it's just a matter of diagnosing exactly what's rattling.

In Canada the VE's save a service notice bulletin # 09-03-08-008a front lower caster/camber arms loose
mine just had it done and the noise primarily occurred at low speeds >15 KPH or when turning a corner and hit a rut/pothole
