Polybush yay or nay?

Hi everyone, my 996 is about to go into indy and have front and rear bushes changed out, the indy says go for standard all round but polybush anti roll bar. Im leaning to polybush everything having had poly's on cars before. But Ive no idea how they feel on the road in a 996, opinions please!!!

    I did it on my 996T when I had it. Felt it just sharpened up things a bit without feeling harsh. I was more than happy with the change.

    Can't comment on the effect on the 996, however having replaced the front wishbones bushes on the 964, I would have no issue recommending them.  Should they require replacing in the future it will be a simple swap, not like it was removing the original ones! 
    Not sure why you are advised to have part standard and part polybush.  Do you know why they have advised that set up?

    The indy felt it gives a more subtle road set up with standard bushes but poly would sharpen up the anti roll bar. My concern was too harsh a ride, the roads round here are shocking!

    I fitted polybush throughout on my 944 and it transformed the handling. Polybush the rolls bar is a compromise, but you would still need to replace other bushes as load will be shifted to tired components. Have been considering replacing mine in the long-term along the lines of Matt's video - whether it's oem or poly I haven't decided yet.
