The weather was nice gorgeous here Saturday. It was 14º, which lead me to garage door up and getting to some maintenance work on MY2001 C4. Over the past few months I acquired parts to install: front lower control arms and links, front tie rod ends and Top Speed rear adjustable toe links. I jacked the C4 up and had at it. The bushings on the front components were pretty shot. I was experiencing a low speed rattle up front over road bumps, manhole cover and seams. Not noticeable at speed but very annoying in town. I had a rear adjustable toe bar with a slight bend (thank you very much unmarked Texas gate). The alignment shop wouldn't touch it because of the bend so I needed to replace it. Pretty easy DIY. Just a little time consuming since I was taking my time enjoying the day. In hindsight I should have done the whole front when I changed the front camber/shock mounts to get rid of the steering groan I was getting up front. (one bushing mount bushing was completely blown). The ball joints pretty much fell out with a light hammer tap on all four corners and the other bushings were pretty soft on the on the old parts after inspection. Fortunately the shop that did the alignment was a 15 minute drive away because the car felt like a dog chasing it's tail on the way to get an alignment. Got an alignment done and the rattle is gone. Front end feels much tighter. Next up ... LN spin on oil filter and oil change. It never ends! Cue ... wife rolling eyes and shaking head!
