Body bushing advice, 70 Nova

My Son is in the mock up stage on his 70 Nova. He hung a Ford nine inch rearend in it, measured up for the new driveshaft, and made some transmission tunnel mods for his new shifter. He'll be blowing it apart soon and sending the tub off to the stripper. Looking at the structure of this car I can sure see why so many people run subframe connectors. Chevy sure was thinking light and cheap when they designed the rear rails etc..
So now the decision is to put subframe connectors in the car and maybe reinforce some other areas, install driveshaft loops, etc. The subframe connectors mate the unibody rear to the bolt on subframe and I'm thinking he needs to use solid subframe mounts with this instead of the stock rubber ones. Or would the urethane type be solid enough? Does anyone here have any advice on the solid subframe bushings? I'm thinking it really isn't going to affect ride quality much, or am I wrong? Any info would be appreciated. Bob
