you might want to use rubber bushings for the rear upper and lower control arms. A lot of people say that the poly's are so stiff that they cause the rear to bind.

I just put poly's in mine and the rear is really stiff. I'm sure a lot of it is beacuse of the aftermarket springs, shocks, and sway bar, but some is probably the poly bushings.

If you want a more elaborate explanation of this, see Global West's site. They also recommend no rear sway bar.
