      KW v3 Suspension Bushing

      Hear a clunk/rattle in the right rear of the waggie in the last few days and got around to jack the car up today despite the 20 degree temps here in CT.

      After checking for all the obvious like loose bolts on the suspension and brake components I thought I would pull the shock in the event the upper mount/perch was shot. That didn't reveal anything but then when I looked closely at the bushing at the bottom of the shock I noticed is was off-center. I literally pushed on it with my finger and it slide right out.

      ViVA Performance should be able to take care of the warranty.
