As far as telling if it is the shaft or the bushing that is worn, you will be able to tell when you have it out. usually you will see the shaft worn down or the shaft hole worn oblong (like an egg)
When you go to reassemble the shaft and butterfly plate, use loctite on the 2 little screws that hold the butterfly to the throttle shaft.
This is a mistake that many of us learned the hard way!
If your shaft looks good, some people have even made there own bushings for the shaft.
Hope this helps! And good luck.

In my limited experience, shafts tend to wear more in one direction than the other
After the shaft is out, mic both ways where the wear would be and see if there is much difference.
