Car was up on a lift today getting new front discs and pads, I looked at the control arms and saw no black fluid around the bushing.

However, we did notice that if the car is rolling forward slowly, and brakes are suddenly applied, the car rocks front to back for a second after the car stops. You can feel the car rocking if you're inside, and you can see the wheel and car rocking from the outside.

There is a small amount of play in the bushing.

Mechanics said all symptoms seemed to be pointing toward a worn control arm bushing.

Do you experts agree with this diagnosis based on the new symptoms?
