I would venture to say your rubber bushings are deteriorated and the
additional slop is giving you a "disconnected feeling.  The urethane
bushings are a nice upgrade for performance and I beleive they are less
expensive than the stock (oem) rubber parts.  They will add a little road
noise to the cabin while driving.  More so in city driving than highway.  I
liked the performance gain.  It definitly tightened the car up (my b-13 had
180k on it when I did my bushings).  I feel that the front and rear urethane
engine mounts added more cabin noise than the bushings though.  Especially
at ANY rpm below 2500.
