Apparently it is not fluid-filled (Basically a solid piece of rubber or polyurethane or whatever, but not fluid).

The bushing (oem) for the thrust arm is fluid filled for the I6. The lower control arm bushing (oem) is not fluid filled for the I6.

Here are the pics: I6 Control Arm Install (Thrust)

Halfway down you will see the oem bushings (new) that were removed from the metal sleeve. The fluid leaked all over my work table and you cannot see it in the pics. However, you will see the guts. My suggestion is to suck it up if you can and get the Lemfoerders.
