    May I ask why rubber? The tubular and poly bushed UMI pieces on our car have been noise free and without any harshness since installation.

    The roads I drive on suck. Any extra softness in the suspension helps.

    Thanks Jeff!

    We looked at rubber a few times then decided if customers were going to upgrade from flimsy factory GM that a bushing upgrade would be warranted as well...

    The poly formulations nowadays are actually quite good. Medium stiff and nice and quiet.

    ^ what he said...Jeff convinced me to do poly over rubber and I have no regrets.
