New Struts/ Control Arm

Took my 09 into the dealer due to some clunking in the front end and some noise from the rear. The struts mounts and busings in the front have to be replaced along with the rear control arm and bushings. Anyone have the same issue, its all warranty work but just checking to see if this is a random event or not. Only 12000km on it as well.

Usually it's the front control arms because of the ball joints and bushings in them and not strut bushings.

I have heard of the rear Control Arm bushing "walking" out of place. Not too common but something to watch for on the MK's and Calibers. These are replaced with adjustable unit in the RRO lift kits and I haven't had a problem with them.
