front lower bushings on 5100's

so been chasing a noise over small bumps. Today I discovered by hitting the UCA it sounded loose. Bolts were tight, but when I held the lower shock it was quieter. Pryed up on the lower mount and no more noise at all. Anyone else had a problem with 5100 lower front bushings wearing out after 20-25K miles?
And what did you do about it?

if I can't get it warrantied....

Anyone know of an upgraded bushing? Bilstein says they use the OEM bushing. What struts won't do this and will lift 2.5-3" Might of found an excuse to upgrade struts haha
