Default Rear sway bar bushing questions

Hope you don't mind, but I have a '96 Olds 88 LS, which is basically the same car as the Bonnies, suspension and powertrain wise, anyhow.
I was wondering if anyone has tried putting polyurethane bushings in the rear sway bar, not in the end links, but in the two middle bushings that hold the bar in place?
Do you have part numbers or sizes? I'm planning on replacing the end links with poly bushings, but it would be even better to do the 2 middle bushings as well.
Thanks for this forum, it'* been great.
I've taken off my MAF screen, and opened up the air box behind the filter, and it'* helped the engine a bit.

I donít have the info right n front of me but I know the solution is on this site but it was mentioned for the other bushings on the front sway bar. Universal bushings are your best bet. Just have to go to a shop selling universal parts in urethane and take a rubber original. If that still doesnít help I have a few goodies coming up that will help.

TY
