Anyone make polyurethane or 'synthetic elastomer' upper control arm bushings?

I've been looking through catalogs and websites for the major performance bushing makers and I can't find anyone who makes upper control arm bushings. Am I just missing something here or are there just no vendors offering upper control arm bushings?

Rock auto has some labeled just as control arm bushings. Company called energy suspension. Just ordered a set. I’ll see what they fit. Can’t speak to quality until I install them.

Er, yes, sorry, I should have been more clear. I am aware of the Energy Suspension set, but that's upper and lower control arms and I'm going with the Whiteline lower bushings. I'm looking for just a set of uppers, and preferably ones where I don't have to burn out the rubber from the bushing shells to use them. (Which is what you have to do with the Energy Suspension set.)

Anyone know of any other offerings? Thanks.

I just did my UCA bushings a couple weeks back, I couldn't find anything and opted for OEM vs Energy.

For removing the old ones, I used a hacksaw (sawzall) to cut the lip off and then pressed them through. No heat needed to remove the old or install the new. The other method is to bend that lip back enough to get a bearing splitter in there, mine was just too clunky.
