Suspension Noise problem #1

Took the car into Acura there was a "clunking noise" in front end and could be felt in steering wheel the tech had to retighten the suspension bolts the noise and feeling in wheel returned at approx. 23000 miles took the car back back to Acura the service rep stated suspension bolts should be retorqued at every oil change this does not sound right. . I never owned a car that needed this repair and just want to know if this is normal and could be a safely issue after tech retorqued the bolts the noise and feeling in wheel goes away but returns and has returned.

Suspension problem #2

Purchased car on 01/21/2013. Was back at dealer on 01/26/2012 due to a weird vibration at high speeds (50-80 mph). Long story short they have balanced the tires like 3 times and put new tires but it is still vibrating not as much but still. Going back to dealer to see what they have to say this time.
