Generally, Mustangs Plus knows what they're talking about... that
said... anyone can be in error. So. Did the bushings come with a
particular kit (i.e. Vario-centric or negative wedge)? If so, I would
take a shot and contact pro-motorsports direct and ask them.

By the way, have you purchased the Bump Steer kit yet? According to
the instructions, if you are running radials, you may not need the kit
as the radial tires seem to be much more tolerant of bump steer and
may make it unnoticeable.
