Hey guys

Anyone have access to the recall that was put on 2008+ police only Impalas to check and see whether GM has upgrade front control arm part numbers?

Much appreciated, cheers

Overkill, I recommend checking with GM of Canada agents to see what information they may be able to access for you. Contact Us displays not only their hotline number but also online means of communicating with GM of Canada agents.

Best,

Can you get a car fixed with a TSB without warranty and no recall. But have documents of other customers and a recall of other year impalas.

Probly not
Thousands of tsb get put out on cars. Its not really a recall type thing its just letting the tech know how to do something or what to look for if some symtoms are happening.

now a recall they would have to replace it no questions asked out of warranty

A TSB is an informational bulletin, nothing to do with warranty, and is not a recall.

Are the original un-modified 9C1 9C3 control arm part numbers different from the Civvy models?

Thanks for the TSB.

They are yes but I'm uncertain yet in what way. The front donut bushings are specified different on police vs civilian but there must be more that they've done to strengthen these particular control arms against breakage, whether its increased welding in the construction or larger ball joints etc I don't yet know.

I'd be interested to know what the difference between the Civvy and the replacement 9C1 9C3 A arms is.

Like many other fleet/cop duty parts... They may not be any better just different.
