Are you talking about the standard/original rubber bushings that come with the sleeves and just press in, like its that simple. If so I also decided to go with those as well knowing that the originals did very well in my GT and if these are in fact made of the same rubber material they should last a life time, which has a whole new meaning that it did 45 years ago. Anyway now that I have them I just have to install them and with the recent video it will be a lot easier to do. Looking forward to seeing if the ride improves as the only bushings that appear to have worn out are the lower control arm bushing but since those appear to be the most difficult might as well so the whole set including the spring eye bushings, again in rubber.I drove several hundred thousand miles over 20 years with the red poly's in the A-arms and hated them the whole time. Squeaked like muthufluffas and rode hard. The lube we have nowadays is better than what we had back then. I installed the new oem style injection molded rubber cartridges that have recently become available again and really love them. Much more pleasurable ride. Poly's everywhere else are just fine.

Nice Job. I assume you have a large press - is there a way to remove and install the bushings in the upper and lower control arms without a large press. C clamp perhaps or some other trick besides taking it to a shop and having it done.
Like the gussets and reinforcements!
