I found the 1900101 also - it states that if there is play on the inner tie rod bushing's, it gives part numbers, tools and time needed to repair so I would assume that was covered.
So basically if I can get the inner tr's done for free, it would almost be like a buy one, get one repair - I can deal with that.
Besides having the dealer do the computer, I can pick one up for a song, and I gather I would just need the dealer to flash it with the correct mileage at time of install. No problem installing it myself - its under the fuse box on the drivers side under the hood.
Thanks again - if anyone else has any ideas, please feel free to chime in

Good luck in getting the dealer to do any type of service work other than a recall for free regardless whether you supplied the parts or not. Those TSBs probably would've been covered under the factory warranty. Once that expires they are under no obligation to fix it.

Well 3 responses to your good wishes obvone:
1. The dealer that I bought the car from was an adiot. I got such a good deal on the car originally that I needed to run out the door and not ask questions. It was a 2001 purchased in 2003 with 6000 miles on it. It was a little ole lady back and forth to church car. $9,500 for a $24,000 car ain't too shabby.
2. I have every single receipt for it since day 1 and the dodge dealer that I use already told me that he would do the itr's for free which was confirmed today.
3. computer already purchased - dealer agreed to charge 1 hour labor to flash it.
But anyway........... I appreciate the good wishes

Well then the dealer is either doing it out of his own pocket, which is very nice, or maybe he has extra discretionary funding from the factory, given to dealers on the "A' list, but the TSB wouldn't allow this as "warranty" work. You are long past warranty---so this sounds like a good will settlement of some kind.
#534 of 549 Yeah it was a good faith thing he's doing

With a stinkin' GM product, it may be a multitude of things. Also, they'd rather you burn up in your car and pay the lawsuit than to recall 10K vehicles.
Doing business with GM, et al is like dealing with the devil, you WILL get burned.

So what's new? Almost all the manufacturers look at it as a bottom line decision. Is it cheaper to pay the lawsuit or repair 4 million vehicles? Answer is simple. GM is not an isolated case.

Do you know what "el al" means? Look it up before you say the same thing I did, just you used many more words.
Yep, most of the big businesses are just about the $$ and no concern for anything else; environment, employees, what's best for the customer, et al.
#539 of 549 Honda Civic TSB's for Front Suspension
Mar 29, 2010 (1:56 pm)
I"ve got a 2001 Honda Civic LX Coupe, 1.7L motor, (No side impact airbags)
I've got a noise comign from the suspension that I can't quite figure out.. Springs look good, end links are good, control arm busihings are good. I"m trying to find more info on the below TSB"s for that car. My left strut needs replacement, but the noise is coming from the right, and I can't figure it out..
TSB: 03039 : NHTSA# 10003482, Apr 2004 -- This one for sure
TSB: 01054: NHSTA #'s 627331, 623222, 624364 - This one too
TSB: 5905 : NHSTA# 629541 Feb 02-- maybe this one
TSB: 010101 NHTSA: 624152 -- not so much
There are some other suspension TSB's for this model as well but most look like alingment spec adjustment's to the shop manual, and some replacement details
I've checked out multiple sources and have not really been able to find anything that lists the offendign part / in/out of waranty repair qualification
Obviously the car is out of waranty (Age not Mileage, Grandma's car, it only has 23k miles on it, which kills me that she's had a strut replaced and I need to replace at least 1 strut and whatever is broken on the right side)
