I tried same thing once (I used Toyota bushings and instead of metal ring I used nylon ring, same idea) - the result was that it lasted about 6 months and 15 000 km. They will work fine if you don't go off-roading, but if you do, I have a strong quess that they will broke quite fast. There just is not enough rubber to give elasticity needed in those bushings.
Now I have original bushings and no problemos.
