Apples to oranges, FWIW I did not feel any increase in ride harshness
or vibration when upgrading to delrin swaybar bushings with solid
aluminum center mounts for my 951. Just seemed to allow the sway bars
to better do their job.   I'd be interested to hear your thoughts once
you get the delrin sways in.  Now control arm-to-subframe or subframe
bushings in something more solid (delrin, aluminum, urethane, etc) is
another case, which is what I believe Scott is looking to avoid.

So as a point for Scott, if he can find delrin/urethane sway bar
bushings, I would give them a shot.
