Default Poly bushings for stock sway bar?

Anyone know if there are poly bushings that replace the stock ones using stock sway bars?
My old OE bushings started to develop slop, but wanted to see if I can just upgrade the bushings. iirc, the fronts are 20mm, and rear at 18mm.
Thanks

On a previous gen Impreza I did the opposite (stock bushing on aftermarket swaybar), since the poly frequently made too much noise. That resulted in needing fairly frequent replacement of the bushings, but was worth it to me.

All that said, that shows that from a size perspective this works and I assume that you could just buy the appropriate swaybar bushing based on bar size from Whiteline or other vendor. Poly bushings are likely to last you the life of the vehicle too.

Make sure you use waterproof or silicone grease on the bushings where they contact the swaybars. This will mitigate any binding or creaking for a fairly long time.
