Default replacing rose joints with Poly bush


I'm trying to make my mini more of a GT cruiser than a race car. One of the things i though i would change is the Allspeed bottom arms which have Rose joints. Does anyone know a source of a bushing with would thread in like the rose joint but have a poly bush?

Also i don;t know what the thread form is for these joints does anyone know off the top of their heads?

When i changed from bushed to rose suspension i kept the rubber donuts and same dampners and the rose suspension drove lovely , i wouldnt be to quick to replace it, but if there isnt any i would invest in those gimp mask gaitors that go over them. Dampers and spring/rate will play a bigger part imho as always.
