Suspension Problems with '08' Cobalts?

Has anyone heard of a recurring problem with front suspension parts on '08' Cobalts? I was experiencing a clunking noise from the front end in September last year and as the car was under full warranty it was repaired no charge. The cause was listed as loose stabilizer. Lately there is a clunking noise again that sounds similar. I am leery of returning to the dealership as I am off warranty and this could be costly. Has anyone had experience with this sort of thing and if so what was the final cost to remedy? Also if there are other members from Winnipeg could you recommend a good repair shop as the place I used to use closed and as I am retired I don't have the network I used to.

Could either be the same issue or the Control Arm bushings are shot.

Probably the control arm bushings, this issue is not only a 2008 model problem, it's been an issue since day one. GM cut some corners on the front suspension design. Mines new and it acts up every now and then under low speed braking.
