i would not recommend poly bushings for IFS front ends
i had seen a picture several years ago ( cannot remember if it was a ranger or f150 )
but he custom machined bushings for his IFS suspension
but in cold weather - he went off-roading - he ripped the ifs frame mounts right off of the frame
ploy becomes very hard in sub zero temps and has almost zero flex

you need rubber bushings on ifs rides they allow for greater flex than poly does
