 Description of the problemI took my 2014 dodge ram 1500 2wd crew cab into the dealership for oil change. Previously i had complained about a popping and clicking noise in the front end when i turned the steering wheel. The noise came from the front wheels. I mentioned this today at my scheduled oil change and they checked for a problem once again. This time they found that the driver side control arm bolt (1 of 2) was almost completely out. The nut that is supposed to hold it in place is gone. Picture attached. Not related but just as bad was a passenger side ball joint boot that was cracked and leaking, causing me to have to replace that ball joint. I bought the truck new and have never wrecked it or had any reason to remove the front suspension arms. In my opinion this is a severe safety defect(s) and could have resulted in a bad accident. Most of my time is spent in the truck at highway speeds as i have a job that involves a lot of time on the road. The original problem started before the truck had 50k miles. The problem was identified by a technician at the dealership today on 8/29/17, while the truck has approximately 88k miles on the odometer.
