There is a wide variety in PU bushes from a dozen or more manufacturers. 
Several hardnesses usually indicated by the colour, galvanised steel or 
stainless steel for the bearing surfaces, various lubricants, large 
differences in prices etc.

Do not go for the hardest variety, that is for racing purposes only,  
and go for stainless steel as steel will corrode and wear away the PU 
rapidly. Regarding the squeaking you have to lubricate profusely when 
fitting and you may have to spray the bushes  with a silicon lubrication 
fluid once in a while.

Be careful with oil leakage as PU will disintegrate when in contact with
