Cheers Ronnie,saved me trying to remember/work it out.

Neoprene is soft so possibly not good for bushes.
With regard to using hard bushes I understand your concern that passing more forces to the weld/structure may cause failure, but on the other hand what about the use of Rose joints as they are more or less solid.
Personal opinion on bushes, I have used the best/cheapest/easiest solution to the problem and it will do what I need it to do.
A certain amount of give in the bushes will lessen feedback from the road ie bumps and the like as this will not be fed back through steering and suspension, I think I have read that poly bushes are abrasive and the stainless tubes were sacrifical/meant to wear, so I suppose it all depends on what you want from the car and how much time and money you want to spend.
Please do not take any of the above as argumenative it's only my point of view and there will be someone on here who can give the definitive solution.

Cheers All
