How often do torn bushings occur on Elements & what is the avg replcmnt cost? on 2006 Honda Element

Brought '06 Element in for 90,000mi maintenance. They advised there are "torn bushings" and "it is a safety issue" so need to be replaced. The cost is $625.95, plus $99.95 for brake fluid, and $109.95 for power steering fluid. I must have purchased a limited warranty because these items are not covered under the contract. Yikes, $835.95 and just when I was leaving on vacation . . . sigh!
