      Used front subframe bushing bracket as a jack point? Jacked?

      Hello. I'm a dumb ass. Used the front subframe bushing (back ones on front subframe) bracket and washer as a jack point for lifting and jack stands. Rookie mistake. Am I hosed and need to have them replaced? Car has an intermittent creek noise now and seems to have a new noticeable vibration in the seat of the pants, not steering wheel. 125k 2001 V70 T5.
      I also recently replaced spongy rear shocks with monroe. Much stiffer. Maybe I'm feeling the road more. Unsure. I saw the bushing inserts and was thinking of trying them.
      Would appreciate your opinion.

      That's actually a common place to jack up the car. Creaking is probably unrelated. I would think worn sub frame bushings would cause more of a clunk.
