Default Front suspension

Hello, I'm new to the forum.
I have some questions: I have a 99 S80 with a noise from the front passenger side. When I open the hood and turn the big bolt on the suspension mounting point (the big one in the middle), it turns freely and doesn't "resist" like the other side. Which part has broken? The car has 56k miles. Is this something one can do with basic mechanical skills?
Thanks for your help.

Wow- I am getting this also. My car is a 99- 94k miles. I just got new rims and tires put on, can't prove if this caused it. I am taking it to the dealer tonight, so I 'll share what I hear back.

Dealer looked at it today. Broken strut mount (very common according to them). Part: $51, labor: $150.
