Question: 2008 Kia Sedona 65k miles

I brought my car into get an oil change. They noticed that I needed. Suspension Control Arm Replacement - Front, Lower. They suggested I bring it to a dealer to see if was covered underwarranty. Its not. The dealer said I needed all four subframe bushings replaced as well. So seems to me either the first mechanic missed it or the dealer is trying to sell me something I dont need. Any thoughts?
