Took it in for an alignment and was told both front lower control arm, rear bushings were torn. I have not noticed any rattles or sqeeks. Neither one is torn all the way but almost. I was also directed to a GM service bulletin #07-03-08-004. It relates the same conditions for rattles and sqeeks. They have a new version of the bushings under part number 25823014.
