Hi Peter,

I recently got myself a full complement of bushes, all were Poly apart from the following:

Front rafts, although mine's an SE I fitted the S2 rear bushes as I have S2 wheels which are heavier like the US spec ones:

C100C6006F - LOWER RAFT MOUNTING BUSH (Front) (4 per car)
E100C6001F - LOWER RAFT MOUNTING BUSH (Rear, 2 per car) (Series 2)

If you're refurbishing the TCAs there's one more rubber bush required:

D100C6005F - BUSH, DAMPER YOKES to LOWER LINK (2 per car)

And on the rear suspension:

B100D6018F - BUSH for REAR TOP LINK (4 per car)

I've seen in the past some have reported creaking after fitting Poly bushes, I managed to find some Powerflex Silicone assembly grease which has added PTFE - No creaking so far!
