Question Polyurethane or stock suspension bushings

Just bought a 132K mile Aero. I have the usual creaking from worn bushings. When I had my Viggens I bought polyurethane bushings from Genuine Saab. But he doesn't offer polyurethane bushings for the 9-5.

I found bushings on Elksport but they are pricey. Has any one bought poly bushings for their 9-5? or is it better to buy stock?

Thanks in advance.

not sure which ones Elk is selling, but partsforsaabs.com has the powerflex kit for the subframe, I think around $160, and then shipping, which I find isn't actually too terrible considering it's overseas.

I'm going to be getting a set, just not sure if it's a job I can do myself in the driveway.
