Next-- you repair ALL things you know need replacing
Then-- check over ALL work you paid for--who knows how that
Only then--do you work on the new issues

In my opinion, they are trying to taking advantage of you cause you are a woman. excessive play means there is excess movement in the new part or parts....how can that be if you just not long ago had them replaced? I think you are right, and they are basing their opinion on the worn tires....I would replace the tires and go on down the road, and not worry about it....kk thanks for using fixYa

Ball joints are a serious safety issue, especially if they are making noise. Strut Rod bushings slightly less so. I agree with you, if they are that bad you should have heard your noise before you changed the tires. You didn't sat what kind of noise, but the problems he suggested should make a clunk or snap. Your best bet would be to double check to make sure he properly tightened the wheel nuts when he changed the tires, if you have alloy rims they need to be torqued. If he just put them on with an air gun he may have damaged the rim which could make it break and fall off. And take the car to a repair shop that you trust and have them check your front end. They'll be able to tell you what the tire guy did. Don't put it off because you will find yourself in serious trouble if any of these things are the problem.

if the dealer did brake work they should check for free, stress the fact that there was no light til after they worked on it
