    well ..that depends.I had mine done not long time ago (powerflex) and yes they are know as longer lasting,more durable than oem bushes,but on the other side they make the ride more firm. (they're quite hard therefore you will feel every pothole,bump on the road more than with the regular ones) So if you are willing to sacrifice the comfort of the ride in order to have a longer lasting set of bushes, than yes! go for it. are you on coilies or standard suspension? With standard set up you might not feel the difference that much as with sport suspension.
