Yup, that's done the trick. 90% of the harshness when hitting cats-eyes / expansion gaps has gone, but the rear end is still nice and stable.

Happy with that. :)
black rear subframe bushes on a AH3 c/w with a host of other upgrades - as per signature in the post below

I got the powerflex black fitted, since my attempt to change order from yellow to black.....was too late.

Overall I'm quite please with them;
Setup is really quite easy since they are inserts into the existing bushings, so the procedure to fit them is simple, and it can be reverted if the result isn't as expected.

The rear end definitely feels tighter, though I haven't pushed the car yet;

Noise: no change
Vibration: on very grainy surface it can become annoying after a while, however i'm just back from 5 hours of driving on different types of roads and it's barely noticeable.

So indeed overall quite pleased with this, looking forward to having a bit of fun with the car now :)
