My guess is that the reason it feels like a tin can is because the joints are all loose. Solid joints will transmit more vibration into the car then a rubber bushing but I can't see it being much more than a poly bushing if the joints are tight.

You could also go halfway and use poly or rubber on one end of the link and solid joint on the other end.

There are also some nice new rebuild-able spherical bearings out there that should work well on a street driven car (most of them were made originally for 4x4's).
