Default front suspension upgrade

Hi all! I am in the middle of replacing all the bushings and coil spring seats for the front suspension of my '65 coupe. I am thinking of urethane bushings, what do you all think of urethane's? is there a budget front suspension upgrades while everything is apart?

by the way it has the 302 in it.

Thank you,

You'll get answers good and bad on this one.
Some guys love poly bushings, some hate 'em.

I have them 100% all way around and luv them. One of the best upgrades I ever did to my car.
Rides nice and tight, real smooth with no noise.

I decided to buy all new upper and lower control arms and came with ball joints. I just decided to go that route to make things a little easier. thank you for the help.
