Lower Control arm inner rear bushings

So it sounds like I need to replace the inner rear lower control arm bushing for my driver side. I thought it was my sway bar end links. I guess I might as well replace all four lower control arm bushings.

I was looking for maybe a polyurethane replacement to make it last longer, but the ones that Iíve found are solid, which doesnít have the groove like the OEM to make it more flexible.

Should I stick with the OEM style?

It creaks and clunks over bumps.

Found a video of how to replace the bushings. At about 5:48 he demonstrates the creaking noise I was talking about.

Also, I found a polyurethane OEM version:

Should I get this instead of the solid one?

if you dont mind squeaking and creaks go poly, you can put all the lube ypu want on those, they still will make noise, they work fantastic though

Oh, I didnít know that. I donít want the squeaks and creaks, thatís why I want to replace the bushing to get rid of the noise. Iíll go OEM then, thanks for the info.
