Manta Sway Bar Bushings

Are these available in polyurethane? Looking at their catalog, Opel
GT Source has the front sway bar bushings only in rubber, and
nothing for the rear as far as I can tell.

Guys on the manta400 list say they were around but were prone to
splitting at installation, so I'm guessing Gil discontinued them? Can
someone give me details? If so, what are the alternatives?

You are correct. Gil at OGTS has pulled the Poly Lower Control Arm to Sway
bar bushings.

The poly bushes in this location, will last only for a few months in street driving, or a few 3 maybe 4 races. Handling> Feedback was very good! But
they do not last in this application too long.

The stock rubber will last, years & years & years............

There is NO other long term option.

IF you were racing. I'd replace them with poly.... If I was crazy, I'd do them on the street myself. But I do not want to change them often.
