Forge Polyurethane Frong SwayBar Bushings. Anyone got them?

I was thinking of getting a big rear sway bar, for many reasons i dont want to change out my front one, but i did want to strengthen it with some poly bushings. I was wondering if anyone had put these on there car and what they think of them.
Thanks

Doubt you'd even be able to tell the difference unless you really, and I mean really, pushed the car, like on a road course. I could be wrong, but if you are going to go to the trouble of putting the bushings in, I think you have to drop the subframe anyway so might as well get a real bar so you can slam it.

When i got down there it looks like you dont have to drop the subframe at all, thats one of the main reasons i am looking it to getting them. Plus the rubber bushings on the sway bar now are really soft. I also have my car dropped 2" and have never had a problem, so i dont know what all the hype is about.

I ran a 2" drop on my old car with the front sway, no problem here either. But it's not far past the 2" that the swaybar will rub. I tried CPP endlinks and couldn't get rid of the rubbing.
But there isn't much room down there to swap the bushings without dropping the frame. The bushings aren't thick so I doubt there is much play in the bar no matter how soft they are.
