Personally I use polyurethane parts instead of rubber ones made to Mil-Spec standards by Energy Suspension. That company supplies all of the bushings and plastic pads required for the US military. For ball joints and tie rod ends I look to US Made manufactures (keeping in mind any thing manufactured in the North American continent that is within a hundred miles of the border qualifies to bear the "Made in USA" label. Mexico and Canada actually have a better track record on parts in my opinion than the US does lately.

Ive seen where people complain about the poly bushings being too stiff. I may give them a shot anyway and see how I feel about them.

What do you all think about CPPs rebuild kits? Are the geared towards a direct pen replacement quality-wise?
