Question Rear Suspension Bushes

After having the EL XR8 lowered recently, I'm thinking about replacing the bushes in the rear end. Which ones should be replaced, how much the roughly cost......

Front end has already been done.....

Any Opinions

Trailing Arm bushes, sway bar are your first ports of call. If want to the other Watts link, and shock bushes do that later. Make sure they are Nolathene.

Nolathane are too hard, go with Poly Urethane (Super Pro)

Poly's dont have the wear factor of Nolathanes, and would possibly be not worth it in the long run, but personal opinion is anyones game, and you dont know if you dont ask. Ask around and get some feedback on either.
