If I recall correctly, what was discussed previously on these poly bushings is that they will definitely last longer, have tendency to squeak and give a bit harsher ride.
I would just replace the missing one and the cracked one with new rubber ones, simply because, while they may not last anywhere as long, it is still basically a maintenance item and even if I have to do that job every 5 to 6 years, it is part of my maintenance of the car.

FWIW I’ve replaced some and eventually all of my rubber bushings Several times in the past 10 -12 years. Diminished quality I suspect is the cause.

When I replaced the busing 30 plus years ago, the only thing available was rubber. I am missing one and the others are cracked, so time to replace.  Now Moss has Prothane bushings.  I seem to recall that there was a discussion that the Poly bushes do not last.  What is the consensus of opinion rubber or poly.
