Polyurethane here is like polyurethane ball-joint boots... I don't see the benefit.

These should work fine for the front. I'm not sure which part number would fit the rear.

I just use some 1/2" heater hose and slide it over the ends of the spring.

Or if you want less 'cush', wrap the top of the spring with an old bicycle tube. The isolator/pad is only there to prevent metal to metal contact, reduce vibration and quiet the ride.
You'll also get a little bit of lowering as well.
