Mine had play in them at 40k then by 50ish had appeared to collapsed. The rubber may have degraded as my car had been sat for a month or so before I bought it, although it's not uncommon for them to need replacing at that mileage/age

Powerflex do an insert into the voided console bushes but this is a less cost effective way as you would have to purchase the standard bushes aswell. They inserts also present a possible problem that they can get dislodged.

I didn't replace the front bush as it seemed to be in decent enough condition, only the console bushes.

You don't mention which powerflex bushes she is having but if you are getting the car aligned after then it may be worth changing them now.

I was quoted about 1.5 hours a side labourwise from garages for the console bushes
