Urethane bushings deflect suspension components less than the softer rubber, so they are on my list of things to have in trying to achieve the right entire package. However,they alone may not correct your severe handling problem. If your percentages on scales and ballast placement look OK, I would suggest really looking into your front suspension setup including: roll center location, caster, camber, and toe.
