Replaced Lower Control Arms Twice

went into the stealership for my oil change and they noticed my lower passenger side control arm was loose and told me i should feel it bump or hear it....i hear nothing. just wondering what i should be looking/ listening for or if it is just the tiniest bit loose and they tell me so they can steal 450 bucks for replacing a decent condition arm and ball joint. any help is appreciated
I found that I had to replace the arms twice within the past 2 years. I have over 100000 miles on the vehicle and the second time was 2 months ago, when I had a tire repaired they lifted the car and found that the bushing on one side was already worn out and the other was loose. It was not due to driving recklessly but probably due to worn struts. Both front struts have not been replaced. It cost me over 500 for the first replacement and another 500 for the last one. I found that rockauto is the best place to purchased parts. It is cheaper that purchasing thru a garage and/or dealer. But some garages do not like that you have your own parts. I have a warranty on the arms from the garage but will have them also put in new struts when they come in from rock auto. Not happy that I have to replace them again.
