    I would definitely try it !
    The noise reduction would be enormous.

    I am not very sure how long would it last and also if it would generate heat with the quick vibrations.

    I hope they took heat into consideration too... "...Oilite bearings are impregnated with oil which also permits them to operate efficiently under heavy loads at moderate speeds or light loads at high speeds..."

    You'd probably need to make a new block to mount them onto the rods.
