How long does sway-bar bushings last on a w124?

I had my sway-bar bushings replaced, along with the rest of my suspension, last year. I have driven about 20000 miles since and now it feels like the bushings are worn out again.

My front end kind of 'thumps' over small imperfections in the road and is tram-lining(?) a bit too.
I recently replaced all 4 shocks but that made no difference at all.
I checked the ball-joints and they seem ok.

Can the sway-bar bushings really be shot after only 20000 miles?

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do, you're a mile away -and you have his shoes!
