W210 lower control arm bushing alternative.

I am needing to change out my lower control arm bushing on my 210. Is there a alternative to the fluid filled ones? I am not looking for a poly bushing. But a good rubber one.

I have seen urethane bushings for sale, but haven't heard any experiences about them.

Do we know for sure that they are fluid filled?

You might be able to get an off brand that is all rubber.

If that does not pan out, perhaps using smaller bushings from another car and making sleeves would be a option.

They are fluid. I have one starting to leak. I found a company that makes a poly kit. $80 for both sides. I might check it out. If I get them I will post a review.
