that small arm should be strait its the only way it has any strength. with it being bent it is putting a load on the suppension and that is where your noise is comming from. if you take it in to get the allignment checked it will show up there. just install a new arm and the sup shoud return to its normal position and wont need an allignment.
hope this helps

HI, this noise can be caused by worn shocks,even if the bushings look good, you can remove one of them and check if is hard to constracts ,if not they must be replaced,

Generally the bushings aren't too expensive (likely about 25-30 each...But, unless you have done this kind of work, driving the bushings out and installing them can be difficult without a press. I've done many in-shop and its nothing like the ones I've done at remote locations using a hammer and chisels etc. You can do this yourself but I'd opt to do the r&r at home and have a machine shop do the actual bushing pressing. If you damage the arm ends you will need to replace the arm or do a bunch of bending to get the bushings back in place.
If you do have a press, than go at it!!

That control arm is technically un-servicable and by the end of the day after finding something,then trying to wrestle these in where they work properly,probably the best, easiest and cheapest in the end is to replace the control arm.

Testimonial: "Thanks Jeff. I bought two control arms online and my mechanic installed them for me. He was surprised that they were not serviceable."
