what's this i hear about lift bolt issues on the 2000 GTS?

what exactly does this mean?

my car has 56k miles. if they were gonan be bad would they have already gone? maybe they've been replaced by the previous owner.

i obviously want to have it checked before it goes out of warranty. will they charge me just to check the lift bolts? i know if they need replacing it will be covered but what about just looking for me?

or do a search I've made several threads on this before wink including more pics of the install. and if they check and the bolt is NOT broken you are gonna be charged $78 or higher wink best to DIY or find someone out that way to do it for you. I usually do it for people but I'm a lil far away from kentucky. lol
