If you grease the heck out of them during installation they should be great.

Poly bushings came with my rear say bar install kit and I thought they were squeeky. However when I reinstalled the sway bars after the linkage broke I lost all the noise the bushing made. I rate them much better than stock and very little increase in noise or roughness. They will also last a lot longer than the ruber stock bushings.
