Do you mean they came up slightly through the strut plate under the hood? Is rust an issue? Any trouble steering or noise when steering?

I'm not sure what bushings you are referring to other than on the strut itself. Take the weight off the front wheels and check for excessive play.

I am reffering to the bushes underneath the body at the front where they join to the body?
