Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX expert here at Just Answer. The bushing that the control arm connects to is seized and causing the hub assembly to bind. Thus the weakest link is the control arm and it breaks. Have your technician check the metal spherical bushing and I am SURE that he will find that is seized.
