Poly? Rubber? D30 CA Bushing

The past month or so i have been having some mysterious wandering/clunks in the front suspension when driving and have not been able to find out where they were coming from. To make a long story short i decided to pull the all of the front CA's. To my surprise the upper passenger side CA mounts hole was an 1 1/2" long. Not just wobbled out ... it looks like a J ! I just welded a washer there for now until i get some plate to beef it up. I check the torque specs on the suspension religiously. Not sure WTF was going on when i saw that. Then i was checking out the CA bushings over the D30. The passenger side over the axle tube looks fine but it turns out it is bad. I can put a small rod in the sleeve and almost pull the sleeve against the mount. The bushing is soft and needs to be replaced. I was thinking of using poly bushings over the D30 on both sides. I don't think that i will feel any bad vibes since i have upper rubber on the same arm. What have you guys used? Will the Napa Clevite bushing part# 267-1465 work? I don't want to cheap out on some Crown bushing.

No the axle mount. Not worried that it will happen again just wondering what other bushings people have used etc can't seem to find a pic or anything. Are both sides suppose to have outside sleeves as well?
