Control arm bushing question

Looking to get some insight on control arm bushings. I have a 69 with original bushings and have met the end of their life. Literally falling apart. So I need to replace and thinking of either Del-a-lum or stock rubbers. I know the difference, benefits, and all that stuff. Don't really need to be educated on that. I have a dilemma of spending the money. Being a single dad of 3 kids full time and mother is not really around I don't really have that much extra to spend on things. I can afford it if it's really that much better but it's a lot of money. Even just replacing with stock rubber would be big difference as it's loose as is. I don't drive it that much. Maybe 1500 miles a year. I don't drive it hard or anything like that but just want to stiffen up the front end. Any thoughts or input to help money tight dad?? Thanks, Brian

Buy some quality Moog rubber bushings. Replace the sway bar bushings too.

X2 with Don. I like the ride with OEM and I have another with the expensive, waste of money, bushings. I drive my cars 500 miles to shows and cruises. New tires, sway bar, and Gabriel HD gas shocks.
