I would suggest that they look into the sway bar endlinks, and the sway bar bushings on the subframe.

I feel that's where this whole problem is coming from, aside from the possibility of a lower control arm bushing failure, but considering I just inspected mine and saw no signs of wear whatsoever, I don't think that's the case.

Bushings are cheap, the endlinks shouldn't be expensive either (and there are aftermarket solutions out there for both). Since your dealer has taken care of you thus far, see if they'll swap the aforementioned items out.
