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.

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.
