Two things that come to mind as well as one that I had replaced and made my noise go away... First is ball joints... make sure those are still in good condition as well as the bolts holding them in if they are aftermarket are tight enough to prevent the joint from moving back and forth in the control arm. And second the one that I fixed on mine that I think was my cause is the horizontal bolt for the control arm bushings. Mine was corroded on the inside where the bushing sleeve ran and was a bit loose compared to a newer better condition bolt. I'm not sure if the bushing sleeve was moving and making my noise or not but I eventually got it to go away.

The ball joints are new and came with the control arms. I did check to see if they were tight and they were. Betting that the horizontal bolt is just like yours was. Could be that both bolts are bad, never got to see them because a shop put the arms on. Thanks for the tip!

We will see if the tie rod arm bushings do the trick, not holding my breath though. They are just another thing that needs(or needed) to be replaced.

Does this look right for the front bolt? There is no shank on that bolt?

Nalley GMC wants $33.04 for the front and rear. That is a bit much in my mind.

It'll work. Not what you have stock. There should be a section on the shank with a void of threads.

Damn, well got the part number from Nalley. So they are going to sell me the same thing. Bit of a pain to get some from the JY, as that is a lot of work and most should be just as rusted. Guess it will be the Ebay bolts, not real happy about that.....what can you do eh?

Post them up. :good:

Give me some time on the photos. The number I used for the rear was the same one you gave me(22586683). As for the front it's 22656154.
Have not ordered the bolts yet, leaving that open for more info like the above post.

Just incase 1995 Base.

The bolts don't have a void of threads. They are fully threaded.

The Beretta must use a tap bolt and GM making a change to use a bolt with transition for a shank.
