Prothane upper axle housing bushing

First time posting, seen a lot of knowledgable people on here. Thanks ahead for the help. So my question. Anybody used/uses pro thane for their upper axle bushings? I've heard yes and no. Any thoughts?

I wouldn't do it without some serious strengthening of the torque box being done.
There needs to be some flex in the upper control arms so that they don't tear up the mounts to the chassis.
Just use new rubber bushings and I think that Maximum Motorsports sells the whole control arm with a new rubber bushing and a neat tool to install the upper bushings in the rear axle.

I am doing torque box reinforcements in the future. I have some sve upper/lower control arms that I haven't put on yet. Bouncing around the idea before I put them on. I'm leaning towards rubber. Thanks for the input.
