Would it be ok to replace the IRS to unibody bushings with machined aluminum? Would it hurt anything?

It would probably cause problems eventually. Ford used "rubber" for a reason and it was probably to reduce NHV to the cabin. Also it could serve to reduce shock loads from road bumps transmitted through the IRS to the unibody.

I highly considered this when I was at my old machining job. But I got lazy and just used new overpriced OEM bushings. :(

A lot of the imports use them for better handling. If I do decide to make my t-bird a performer some time I'll prob do it, but that wont be fore a while lol.
