If you truly want hard core performance, replace them with solid bronze bushings, or bearings.
Otherwise use rubber.

Thanks for the feedback. I have only used poly once and I did not keep the project long enough to see if it was or was not beneficial. The solid bushings are definately out. I want some ride comfort....
