    If you have ECS front end links, check them.

    I was replacing some screws in the wheel well area as I had some that were mismatched from a previous owner. While I had the car up and the front wheels off, I decided to check the front and rear end links. I'd previously had issues with the 034 Motorsports end links squeaking the day after any time it rained. They sent me new ones and all was good for some time but I started to get a squeak again.

    I discovered that the outboard poly bushing on the driver's side front end link is disintegrating audit appears that's where the squeak is coming from. It's a polyurethane bushing and just looking at the remnants, to me it appears the density isn't high enough. The passenger's side looks just fine and these were torqued to spec. I'll be sending an email to ECS to see what they say.

    If you have them, put some eyeballs on them and make sure they're still intact.

    That's very concerning. You have a PM from me, I'd like to get these back from you so we can do an R&D failure review and get a replacement set of links out to you.
