    Just a quick question....which is better, or which do ya'll like more? I've got to replace just about everything under my 78K5, and I don't want to use any more factory rubber!

    Are you asking about spring bushings or body mount bushings?

    Be aware that the poly bushings aren't nearly as soft as the rubber ones. If you replace the body mounts with poly bushings, you'll feel more vibration through the body. They don't isolate road vibrations as well as rubber bushings.
