I had the same issue a couple of years ago. Turned out that the lower control arm bushings on both driver and passenger side went out. Since I had to replace the rear struts I just bought the a-arms. My advice would be to do the repair yourself. The control arms are pretty easy and the struts aren't bad if you have a coil compressor. You can just rent one from an auto parts store. I got quoted in the area of $900 to do it and the total job was only around 2 hours and the parts (I got a discount through a friend from the dealer) was only around $450. I would agree with some of the other posts. Most likely the compliance bushings.

I noticed that there is very little clearance between the lower control arm and the sway bar. I believe that the sway bar is hitting the lower control arm or vice versa. I replaced the sway bar end links and bushings recently and noticed that there really isn't anything keeping the sway bar from drifting right or left that would reduce the clearance between the LCA and Sway bar to 0 and then every time the LCA flexes it will hit the sway bar. Any thoughts.
