Me.

Anyhow, the front control arm bushings are a very common wear item. By design they absorb a lot of force. So replace with new bushings. I like the OE type liquid filled rubber units that don't last a long time because they promote smooth ride and steering. You can go with harder, longer lasting, polyurethane ones if you're so inclined. I noticed more low clunking than steering wheel shudder when mine failed. The symptoms you notice will likely be dependent upon how far gone your bushings are.
