Similar situation

Not getting noise but front end seems quite loose, I'm getting bad steering response at speed and a breaker bar on the driver's side lug nuts shows quite a bit of front to rear movement of the wheel. Took the front wheels off and moved it by hand.....loose where the control arm enters the bushing on the frame.

It does not look close to the photo on this thread....driver's side is really bad, pass side a bit better as far as play goes.

So the question now is what to do? Replace with OEM mounts? Replace with aftermarket? I assume I need to remove the control arms to do the replacement, should I get new arms? BTW the car only has 26K on the clock.....I don't get why they are shot, but I assume they are!

Thanks for any opinions.......
