2011 mustang v6 control arm

Hey guys I have a 2011 mustang v6 with a small issue regarding the control arm. Yesterday I had the car checked at the local shop and the mechanic told me the bushing needs to be replaced and in order to do that the entire control arm needs to be replaced. The car is fairly new with 63000 miles on it and I hate to think that ford messed up. I need some suggestions on how to handle this and if their is a way to get this done through the dealer. Thanks!

if under warranty check with a dealer. if not buy some good aftermarket ones (UPR comes to mind) and do it yourself.

63,000 miles will be out of warranty.

I just did a quick search and found this:
Prothane Mustang Front Control Arm Bushings (05-10) - LatemodelRestoration.com
There is a second set of bushings you would need as well, I only copied the link to one of the pair.

I don't know if the front control arm has changed between 2010 and 2011. Might check the prothane website to see what they have.

It might be cheaper in the long run though to just replace the entire arm rather than replace all the bushings, after paying for the shop time on the replacement. New lower control arms are about $300 a pair and swapping them could take less time (plus you get new ball joints at the same time with the arm swap)
