What is a ''Torque Strut Bushing'?

Pardon my lack of knowledge here but what is a 'Torque Strut Bushing'?

The SA is telling me I need to get them all replaced. I'm just wondering how urgent it is to get done.

Could this part be the cause of a random vibration I get?

the torque strut bushing is also called a guide arm bushing. you have 2 arms that connect from the steering knuckle to the subframe. and each have bushings attached. usually when they are worn out you will feel a clunk in the front end when going over bumps.
