Default pics of lower control arm bushing?

swapping tires for snows today, notice the rubber bushings on the control arms in the front look torn, anyone have pics of what they should look like?

also pics of top motor mount it seems to be seperating from the metal housing?

I noticed the same thing with the control arm bushing on my PT, seems there is a problem with toe in when excelerating and decelerating that occurs which wears the bushing. Personally I think int's part more hp from the turbo and added stopping strain from the front wheel disc brakes that wear the bushings. Some people replace them with stronger urethane bushings. I ended up ordering a pair of Psi Fi bushings to replace them: . Kind of on the pricey side, but you can't beat piece of mind when your talking suspension and handling.
