lower control arm in jeep liberty 2005 failed

So while i was driving along and then as i turned into a parking space, the front passenger side Lower control arm ball and socket failed and pierced my alloy. Has anyone ever heard of this happening?

The garage that just replaced my front strut system said they are not to blame and they replaced the system without touching this?

needing help or advice

thanks.

Welcome to the garage.
Sounds suspicious that this happened after replacing the struts.
Any picture of the broken part and damage?
