I put Energy Suspension bushings in my sway bar links a few years ago and they've been great.

It's odd that your truck is eating them the way it is. Has it ever been in an accident or anything odd about the suspension? Our links us a much larger poly bushing than the stock ones and they tend to hold up a lot better. They also have grease zerks to help with longevity. Will they last forever, no. But they should do a lot better than the ones you have had. They run $95 a pair. If you have any questions, just let me know.
