Default NCT fail question?

Just had my 325ci in yesterday failed on rearmost bushing on front suspension offside!
Should I change whole wishbone assembly or just the bushing and should I do both sides opinions please car only has 52000 miles!
I'm looking at these as replacement parts opinions please also?

I replaced both with ''Powerflex'' polyurethane. These have much much longer life than OEM, Meyle, Lemforder or other brands and they don't impact your driving comfort.
