upper control arm bushing - stay rubber or go johnny joint?


I have decided I need to replace my upper control arm bushings. Both have now been covered in oil due to leaks and seem to be going soft + I am starting to get the good old JK shimmy again. They always seemed quite soft when new but I am positive there is deterioration.

My question is do I replace with the Currie johnny joint solution or do I replace with rubber? And if rubber should I go with OEM or aftermarket bushings and who makes decent ones?

ex: RHD JK 2dr CRD auto
now: RHD JK 2dr Rubicon 3.8 6spd
