Default Automatically Replace Bushings with Struts?

I had the struts (all four) changed on my '98 Camry last summer and now I
have more noise from one of the front ones. Apparently it is the strut
bushing (upper) and needs replacing. Although the part isn't worth much,
this isn't going to be real cheap because of the labor. I'm wondering if
these should have been changed along with the struts, or if I at least
should have been offered the option. Should the shop be expected to eat
some of the labor costs for this?

Not necessarily, but in your case, I would have. I'm surprise the person
that replaced the struts didn't catch this.
