Thrust bushings

Dealer ran the general inspection and asked to replace the thrust bushings as these were failed in the inspection. So, is it safe to drive on these or should be replaced immedately ?

quoted $555 to replace thrust bushings

any thoughts???

Is that the control arm bushing? I would take it to an indy and get another estimate, though it seems that is mostly labor. Assuming I'm thinking about the right part, it runs around $50-75 per side.

Are both side blown? How bad? Maybe ask them to show you?

I *think* it's #10 in the diagram, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

If this is correct, I would get the powerflex versions:
