Thats the only complaint i've read about the duff bars, except maybe one post claiming it firmed up the ride. Anyone else have any complaints ? Maybe there is room for improvement in the next design.

You probably had them adjusted way too tight. They need a little slop and if you compress the forward bushings too much, that's what happens.
