I would think that poly bushings in that join would stiffen up the control arm, make it ride a bit rougher, and limit articulation a bit? The other complaint with poly bushings is squeaking if you don't keep them greased... but with a steel center insert that will probably be ok.... just really stiff. The OEM rubber bushing design allows it to give a lot for the LCA to articulate.

What ball joints did you use?

Can you tell much difference in how it rode before?

Give us a parts list there. Especially the brand or part number for the leveling kit, spacers, UCA, LCA, stabilizer links, and why you picked them.

This forum helped steer me to KYB/PROFORGED/MOOG but the big deal was ReadyLift on Amazon.....the price swing throughout the day on Amazon was incredible and I've seen it as low as $430 and back up to retail. @430 there was no reason to consider other brands or generics
ReadyLift 69-8010 = strut extension, SB link, coil spacer, adjustable camber arm
KYB Strut
KYB shock
PROFORGED LCA
PROFORGED outer tie rod
on order
MOOG springs
PROFORGED inner tie rod
Cam bolts
