You can sacrifice an old toe compensator to create the spacer, the pivots will come out with a BFH

Rubber in the right conditions can outlast poly(obviously there are decades old cars with stock rubber somewhere in places), poly doesn't dry rot but it can deform and crack when enough pressure is applied, which is why it's really bad in strut rod applications, and even sway bar endlinks(my energy suspension ones were destroyed after ~7 years), but the same applies over time with pivot bushings. That's where delrin shines, it holds it's shape, doesn't rot and is stiff, but for a price. Poly can be cheaper than OEM rubber, more available and in some areas last just as long. If you have new rubber bushings and toe comps on hand already I'd probably just run them.
