    Has anyone replaced the factory style rubber body bushings (not polyurethane) and know where the best place (cheapest), besides GM and LMC to get these? Thanks.

    Don't waste your time on factory mounts. Get the polyurethane mounts and you won't look back. The are only about $100 at most. Well worth it. I have them and they are great.

    But don't they ride rougher and squeek unless lubed?

    Yes, they ride rougher, as in, they don't cushion as well, but they will last for a very long while, if not forever!! They really help control body sway a little too. That's the one of the reasons whey I like poly. Also, poly is much cheaper than the rubbers for some reason. Just put some grease when you install, and you shouldn't have a problem with squeeking.
