I've never heard of those types of bushes. But I would think a nursery or garden center would be the best place to look.

Shrubbery?!

Poly bushings are nice, but be prepared for the possibility of a noisy suspension.

Yes Polly does tend to squeak at times even with lube it's just the nature of the beast!

Been running energy suspension poly bushes for a couple of years now, no squeaking

Don't know how strict that MOT stuff is you guys have, but over here, poly bushes are 'illegal'. If they could cause you problems there, get a set of black ones instead of the red ones I have which scream 'aftermarket' :-).

Fortunately we do have a 'protection clause' that requires 'proof' of detrimental effects or a compromise of operational safety for aftermarket items .
