bushing kits???

hey guys,
I've got a jeep with 220,000+ miles on it. It's finally hit the point where its getting some death wobble on my 2 in budget boost lift. I've replaced the dampner since the other one looked original and it has helped a bit, but defintely still shimming. I've checked all bolts and nuts and everything is tight. Looks like the miles have finally gotten to the suspension. Any Ideas where i can get a quality rebuild kit for the front suspension?

Also, I'm thinking of staying away from polyurethene. I here they are tough and end up creating a bunch of suspension squeaks. With a jeep with this many miles on it, i don't need any more squeaks. although i could be persuaded with the right info.

Thanks!

Grandpappy I'm in the same place as you: 225k miles, thinking about the 2" boost.
My research on this site says the shock from poly bushings aren't too bad with a small lift, but get worse as the suspension angles down with more lift.
Since I value a decent ride more than the potential increase in steering precision I think I going to go with the stock bushings. Plus they're cheaper.
