When mine fail I will get some strongflex bushings on there.
I'm just wondering now if I should only replace the front ones, or just do all 4 corners.

A. Original replacements will also have limited life.
B. The strongflex ones are SO easy to replace when they crap out.
C. They are cheap.
D. Why throw away the arm when just the bushings are gone?

What is the wear like on the rear ones? Are only the front ones problematic? or can the rears be an issue as wel?

I did a full round set on my E46 a few years ago. I think they cost me 220,- for all 4 corners. I had the red ones, didn't feel any different from the originals (less worn) and once the orignals were out it was just a bolt in job. Too bad only 4 bushings actually needed replacing. Could've saved myself a lot of money/time/effort.
