I asked this once before about how they performed in the Jeeps, and it was mixed with mixed reviews, but most seemed to like them. I know I had them in my Cutlass and I LOVED THEM SILLY!!! I had the full G-Body set: Body Mounts, FLCA's, FUCA's, RLCA's, RUCA's, Sway Bushings, Sway Links, and TRE's, hence why I was wondering about the Jeeps.
I think Morris 4x4 has a complete E.S. XJ bushing set for a great price...

I like poly stuff on something you want to handle well in the turns. but on a jeep you want to flex I would really prefer rubber myself.

Here's the link to where I was going to get them.

Reason being, right now my springs slide back and forth on the steel bushing sleeves making all sorts of racket. Hopefully the 'lips' of the energy suspension bushings will keep them centered. Let me know what you think.

Sounds like the steel sleeve is rust-welded to the bolt? does the steel sleeve move on the bolt too?

No, the bushing is not moving on the bolt, the eye of the spring is sliding back and forth on the bushing. Last time I changed them, I didn't even need to press them in, they just slid right in. Seemed a bit to loose for me, but I rode on them anyway.
