body bushings????????????????HELP

i got a 81 parisienne coupe... and changed my bushings and put polyurethanes and they suck the car drives like a civic.. every bump on the road i feel but no complaints on handling.. nways i wanna go back to rubber mounts cuz comfort is a priority for me compared to handling (its a cruiser not a ricer) my question is


where can i get the rubber bushings (already went to gm i just want other options) also will g-body bushings work on a b-body... since the kit i got from energy suspension was for a g-body (it was listed as the same for a b-body)

thanks

This is all the info you need right in front of you.... Since the G and B-body bushings are INTERCHANGEABLE if made of polyurethane, that means that they would be interchangeable no matter what material they are made out of-- Rubber, plastic, aluminum, steel, Delrin, phenolic, hard wood, etc.
