I'm assuming that's the outer bushing?
If so they look o.k., the outer part that seats in the tube is uncoated, and as long as the inner teflon coating is there and not excessively worn you're fine.

Correct, inner teflon is bueno. The main(?) Bushing has light speckle of copper in one area, clymers states 75% area copper vis is 'worn' on it... Do need to replace the dust covers though, one looks like it had moisture inside it.
