Right side bushing was completely destroyed causing a clunking noise over uneven roads, and left side was cracking. Replaced the lower control arms myself. Easy fix using basic tools and total cost was around $130.

Went to Honda for oil change and now they tell me I need a compliance bushing rair for $480.00! I can't afford this so I may need to stop driving for a while. No more Hondas for me.

Bushings are cracked in the front. I was told that it was pretty typical wear and tear for this mileage. Requires bushings to be repaired for around $700.

my left side bushing also broke, front end made a lot clicking sound in sharp turns. Replace with new.
Same issue, was told by the Honda dealership mechanic that the bushings need to be replaced. He pointed it out to me and I looked and that was the case. Quoted $385 to replace both sides at Norm Reeves Honda at Cerritos.

Front compliance bushings broken (assuming both) - dealer quoted $750 to do the repair and alignment! Wife's 2001 Civic also had them broken around 130k - seems like a Honda problem. It should really be a recall. Going to shop around and see what comparative quotes I can get before deciding. Service adviser said the risk is for uneven tire wear and cupping - fair enough. If I go through 1 extra set of tires because of this issue, it's probably worth it to fix it.
