Poly bushings if you want longevity and don't mind the squeaking.

Rubber if you want noiseless operation, but they supposedly don't last as long as poly bushings.


Also rubber will compress more allowing for more suspension travel than a poly, but on TTB that is probably not going to matter anyways.

Poly radius are bushings don't squeek. I never even grease than and have not had any problems.

Stay away from poly the Spicer bushings. There so ****ing hard thay have been known to snap off the 3/4" bolt from not allowing them to flex

Ditto

I used Energy Suspension polys. No squeaks 4 years later

Poly bushings that are gray or black have graphite added to the polyurethane and don't squeak. Colored red/yellow etc no graphite and may squeak.:thumbup

i wouldnt worry about poly unless you're replacing the axle pivot bushings too. otherwise its like bolting on a 4 inch exhaust to a rice rocket... no sense.
