All quiet again

I had to take the camaro out of the garage recently because my daily driver needed some work done on her. I noticed when I hit bumps in the road the rear end sounded very noisy and was bouncy. I figured because the temps were so low maybe the coil overs were tight and rubber bushings were harder. After a couple days of using the car, I was not happy with the rear suspension. I started checking under the rear to look for anything loose. When I came across the rear, adjustable, lower control arms, both sides had loosened up. The driver's side arm had self adjusted forward a good inch forward. Funny how over time they gradually loosened and I did not notice it. I readjusted the arms and locked them back up. Wow, what a difference in ride quality and noise. I'll have to keep a close eye on them.

Driver's side came loose again. Looks like I'll try the blue goop tomorrow.
