    If you're not doing track driving, I'd suggest sticking with stock. If you find that whatever your driving is, you're wearing out a component far more quickly than normal, then perhaps it might be worthwhile to consider the polyurethane options (while making sure nothing else is way out of whack!). One downside is when you stiffen up one part, the same stresses still exist, and are transferred elsewhere to parts that may not have been designed to handle the stress, with potential for over-stressing other parts; metal fatigue, stress cracks, etc., or in an extreme case, parts failure. Obviously, ymmv, whatever you opt for.
