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 maybe they've been replaced by the previous owner.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
