As you guys know my car makes random noises here and there and it drives me nuts. I went to adjust the endlinks today to make them longer (I have the domeng ones) and when I was pressing down on the control arm I noticed this whole bit moved so I laid down to look. Theres a hole but I can't tell if there is supposed to be a bolt there to keep it from moving

When in doubt, look on the other side. Looks like somethings missing to me.

Wtf. I checked the other side it was just dangling there waiting to come out too.
Went to dealer to order two, how many foot pounds do I torque them down to when I get the new ones?

Now another question.. can I still drive the car? I mean who knows how long has it been gone..

i wouldn't risk it.

i obviously know what happens when one bolt breaks so when ones not there its just as bad.

I'm not sure what size the bolt is but,
M12 = 85 ft/lbs
M14 = 129 ft/lbs
According to the FSM.
