so i hit a pothole...wasnt that big...not too much of a thump....but i heard my cap off my 95 se rim pop out and roll...when i got out to look i found my cap squashed and this broken bolt....
i just got my suspension/alighnment done at a kinda shady shop so i figured they were to blame...so i went to the guy with the bolt and he told me that it was rusted and that that was my prob and the reason why it broke...so whe we put my car on the lift...there was nothing missing on my car everything was correct... nothing was loose...so he said that it wasnt from my car...but then i asked him why my cap popped out....it never did that before hitting bigger potholes ...he said maybe because the new suspension is hitting harder that the older one beause it still like new...i dunno...anyway my car is running fine...everything looked fine when i lifted it....i just wanna make sure....heres a pic of the bolt...if it looks familiar let me know....thanks

did you find the bolt near the car or on the car...

could be someone else's that just so happened to be where your car stopped.

also, if you jack the car up again, look for a similar bolt to see.. if you don't must not have been your car.

thats what the mechanic said first....he even check up a price on them....but when he looked at the car on the lift...nothing was missing and everything was tight like it should be....there was a bolt for every side...like for each left one there was a right one...im buggin...i hope its not from my car...i thought maybe since i just put the rear sway also with the suspension.... and maybe since i put it on oversteer that maybe it gave more stress to the front suspension and that this was the outcome...
