My rubber bushings, while only about a year old, are severly cracked.
I decided to go with poly as all the other stuff on the car has been upgraded with the same.
I got them yesterday then I read poly in the TC's aren't good as they don't provide enough flex and may break the rods.
Over on hybridZ a guy said to modify them by drilling six holes to give them more flex.
So I had one of my guys in the machine shop make some 1/4" holes.
they are definitely more springy now and I don't think I'll have any problems.
The only thing is they are thicker than stock and will need to be compressed with my 16" adjustable pliers.
I hope I have enough hands to put them in.

I didn't end up needing the clamps. They went on easily.
