    just a couple comfort items.
    If you have any doubt stop by a dealer and crawl under a couple and give them a shake. It will put your mind at ease!

    this is great news! (video) i just pooped in my pants a little when i got under there and found them to be loose. i just got back from the dealer doing the rear spring tsb and was poking around underneath checking things out. now i can sleep easy.
