The OEM FCAB's are fluid filled and don't last. Meyle HD bushings are solid and last much longer. I haven't noticed any difference in NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harmonics)

"Slips on" is an overstatement. When I replaced mine (onto an Eibach swaybar) it was a royal pain in the @$$ to get them on. And that was with the swaybar off the car.

It's not a direct indication, but means they will fail soon.
Check for free play. If the ball joint is tight then you are ok for a while.
