did the new control arm bushings fix the problem? on 2003 Volvo XC70

I took my xc to the dealer to find the problem with the bobblng noise in the front suspension. They scratched their heads and said it must be the strut. $700 later, I still have the same problem. I suggested the control arm bushings and they said the car would sway move back and forth when stopping. I had a similar problem a few years back and it turned out to be the bushings on the front sway bar were worn out.
