Seriously pple...I don't know why the fixation with stiffening up your daily ride. Everytime you stiffen up part of the suspension or frame, you direct the force to somewhere else. This is just plain common sense. The energy has to be dissipated somewhere.

Rubber bushings are there to absorb the energy.

Unless you're tracking...in which case Scott's race car is, stay away from exotic delrin or aluminium bushings for daily rides.
