    On older track control arms you could buy repair kits with new ball stud ,shims etc. You can often take the bottom of the modern joints and add in a fresh shim ( under the internal circlip )to take out the play but ONLY if there is no significant wear on the inner face of the track control arm.

    My concern would be why it had worn realtively quickly. Usual problems are car over-lowered meaning ballstud is tight against the inner faces making it wear quicker or a broken internal tension sping ..again often caused by over-lowering.
