Default Polyurethane Vs. Rubber

What are the pros vs cons. Company's like Energy Suspensions offer complete kits to replace every factory piece of rubber with polyurethane. Energy Suspension claims better handling.

How much better?

Whats the trade off?

I have the Energy Suspension motor and trans mounts. There is definately more vibration, but also a much more "solid" feel under power. I'm launching with over 550 RWTQ and felt the OEM's could go at anytime

Put them in my GT, drove it home today for the first time in 9 months. I can't compare it to the stock units as mine were busted before I replaced them with the new ones.
