2008 Impala SS: to replace rear tires..aligned..didnt fix..bulletin

This answer was rated:

I have a 2008 Impala SS that I have had to replace rear tires on due to wear on insides of tires down to the cords. I have had it aligned but it didn't fix the issue. I have done some research and found out about this issue and a subsequent bulletin for impalas with the police package. Will GM replace the rear wheel spindle rods or will the service contract that I purchased cover this? I can't trade it in (nor do I want to), but I can't afford another set of rear tires. Please help!

I would say yes. Show them this but they probably already know.
