    suspension had a little noise , is you are in front of the car in to the left of the passenger side , i think is the suspension or the bushings because is like sometime is broken or loose .

    This has been going on for about 15K miles. It sounds like the whole front end is about to fall off!!!

    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.
