Triangulated 4bar/link ride quality lined heims vs poly bushings

As I'm getting real close to the need to put a rearend under my '36 (Ford PU), I decided on a tri-4bar, but got to looking at didfferent rod ends and there's some that are teflon lined heims type, does anyne have any experience with these on the street? Or should i just stick with polybushing ends?

Personally, I'd not use the teflon lined heim-type ends as I see the teflon lining be more superficial than structurally long lasting. I would also stay away from the cheap rod ends I see on ebay as they as most likely Cheap-Chinese-Communist-Conscripted-Child-Cruelty-Conflicting-Capitalism-Crap.
By good rod ends like Aurora's.

I'm using urethane bushings in a chrome-moly tube with a steel sleeve for a 1/2 bolt through the bushings. These tubes are TIG'ed to a grade 8 bolt that I have machined out to the 1.5" OD on the tube. If the picture loads you'll see it better.
