The bushing in my control arms are dead. Had them replaced under warranty not even a year ago. Is there anything else out there that is better to replace them with?

I was at the shop and they said that the bushing were shot. I can't remember if you need to replace the whole control arm or if I just get the bushings and push them in? Basically the car makes a horrbile noise and I can feel it in the steering wheel. All I need to do is have the engine on and sit in a parking lot and turn the wheel left or right and when I drive you can hear it when I again go left and right, doesn't matter if the car is stationary or moving. Turner and bavauto are two of the best numbers in my cell! What is this lower control arm monoball kit? And is it worth it or would I be throwing money on the ground?

If I remember correctly I have heard of people using the x5 bushings as they are better than the M5's. Is this true or worth doing? I am getting a freebie from the dealer as I had my control arms and bushing replace less than a year ago. So everything is covered under warranty.
