Default 2000 ssei control arm bushing, oil filled?

I changed the oil in wifeys 2000 ssei tonight and noticed the right front lower control arm bushing is covered in a clean oil and is running back on the control arm. CV boots are good. I checked from above and nothing is leaking from above. I did a search and could not come up with a definate answer. I also noticed it looks like the tire has lightly rubbed the plastic wheel house liner. So, are these oil filled and how much play in the bushing is too much? It takes some effort with a pry bar to move it. Any help is appreciated.
