Perhaps the lower control arm bushings are in need of replacement. The site I like to use for parts prices and exploded views is Realoem. Com, the part number is 31129059288

Wishbone is a term I have heard used, I prefer to say lower control arm. The site I recommended is a great place to see the exploded view of the part itself, your problem might well include the need to replace the shock tower mounts too, a safety inspection might be the next thing to do.
