Time for Steering work

My 2000 Ford Dualie is due for a complete steering rebuild. I'm going with a complete Moog kit to cover that but I am considering a Energy Suspension kit for the bushings. These are poly units and while I have used them on one of our A-Arm drag cars obviously noise isn't exactly an issue on it. I am just wondering if I am going to regret the choice of poly and end up with a front end that squeaks and creaks down the road at some point?

The downside of the noise is not worth the more precise steering. Making it back to like the first time I drove it off the new car dealer's lot is good with me.

I personally agree with techinspector1. Like new is good. Noise is bad.
