having done this, I strongly suggest you leave them as-is until they actually begin to crack and allow movement of the LCA. The oem parts are expensive, OEM style inserts are pricey and need a press to replace, and poly bushings will give you increased harshness.

my advice, save up for OEM replacements and wait until the parts are noticeably deteriorated. Only use the poly bushings if you MUST save every dime - and be prepared for increased NVH.

you'll need a heavy duty torque wrench too.

seems to be across many models for many years.

when I saw drips from the driver's side on our 03, the fluid seemed slightly greenish and a little sticky. I don't recall a smell. I wasn't sure what it was until I had read online about them being fluid filled.
