Late swingarm to early bike: Stock mounting system?

I have a 2001 Electra Glide Ultra Classic. I also have the complete rear section from a 2007 that was taken off for a trike conversion.

I have perused postings here for many days (weeks) looking for the best mounting options.

I do NOT want to deal with more vibration. It seems as if all the options that folks commonly use; Sta-Bo, CCE, etc, all use their own proprietary bearings or bushings to give better handling by reducing swingarm deflection. I've ridden touring bikes with swingarm bushing "upgrades" and I don't care to own another.

I do want to use the later rear for the stronger swingarm and slighter larger wheel/tire, but don't want to give up my cushy ride. I have other bikes for tearing up the canyons.

So to cut to the chase... Is anyone making a swingarm/bushing mount system that will allow me to use the later swingarm on the earlier frame and retain all of Harley Davidson's goofy rubber mounts???

I don't know of any but I ran Sta-Bo in my 2001 FLHTCI and it rode better than with the stock rubber bushings , it wasn't stiffer up and down it was just as soft as before , it stiffins it up side to side which makes the bike safer

That is very good to hear. It looks like I will have to use Sta-Bo or something similar.
