Worn M3 tension strut

Went in to get a wheel alignment done to my specs because of the m3 suspension components and i did noticed steering was following the ruts in the road a bit and under heavy braking, but just putting it down to wearing of the tyres.
Suspension tecko took the car for a run and said something is wrong with the front suspension and put it on a special machine which tests the front suspension and sure enough got under the car and the left side wheel tension strut had no play, but the drivers side had so much play the wheel was moving about 2''
So much for stronger M3 bushes only done about 15000 kls
Just ordered a new set from the usa.
