The control arm has all the bushings pressed into it. Replace the entire lower arm. Probably around $300 with alignment.

Does the timing chain and anything to with oil

Yes and no. If the oil pump is going bad the Connecting rods will knock. The Timing chain could be making the sound if the Chain guide came free. My guess is you have a 7 - 70 warranty and they are trying to get out of rebuilding your engine.

I have an 06 Cobalt LS with a very annoying knocking sound coming from the front end. Someone told me it was the stabliizer bar links. I thought it was a strut problem because of the wet marks around both...

It is most likely the control arm bushings. These are notorious for going out on Cobalts. I have had mine replaced twice.

The control arms on both the driver and passenger side have rubber bushings which probably deteriorated. This is causing metal to hit metal when the car goes over bumps.

The bushings themselves are relatively inexpensive; you can most likely pick them up at a dealership for under $40. The only issue is installing them. You have to use a hydraulic press to press the old bushings out and press the new bushings in. This isn't difficult, but you need the equipment.

Yesterday, my 2004 Nissan Quest had the front end bushings and control arms replaced. The car still has a "knuckling" noise when I'm making semi-hard left or right hand turns. Forget about hard turns!! ...

it usually does but you have also an intermediate shaft that connects steering column to steering rack, I know those at times can cause the exact noise you describe although what you replaced usually does.

2004 Nissan Quest front control arm bushing replacement.

Sorry guys not a solution but I too have an 04 Quest, which supposedly has worn controller arm bushings and Nissan says I need both controller arms replaced. For a total of $950!!! I was told that they need to replace the whole arm and cannot replace only the bushings. Now reading the posts on this site I find that to be untrue. Seems all I need to spend is anywhere from $25 to $35 per bushing.

Metal to metal klanking noise in the right front wheelwell area

That is true as far as a Genuine Nissan replacement part is concerned. The bushings are not serviceable through Nissan. You may be able to find them at an aftermarket parts store (ie. Napa, Advanced Auto, etc). If you don't have the tools to push the old bushing out and the new one in, the arm may be the best way to go (and the easiest). Just remember to have the car aligned after replacement to ensure proper tire wear.

Hope this is helpful!
