Noise coming from wheel. Lower control arm?

2007 e92. Sounds like something is loose in my front right wheel, the noise is in the stearing if i jerk the wheel from left to right an every time i hit a bump. Someone told me the bushings go in lower control arms, an this is a common problem. Anyone had this happen or know what cause this?

Yes, those bushings do wear out. Although driving style dependent, 100K miles is reasonable for those bushings to be replaced. Are you sure it is the bushings and not the wheel bearing?
