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?
I have the same exact problem you are describing. So far I replaced two rears tires, and a new rear L wheel because it was bent according to my mechanic but the problem persists.

At this point I am not spending any more money until I research this further. The shaking is so bad in my car you can literally hear it, see and feel the shaking in the passenger seat around 65 + MPH. It could massage you for christ sake its so bad.

Just replace both control arms/bushings I'd imagine?

What ever happened with this issue?
