here on the Left coast we ride WFO all the time in the big ol' sandbox, which creates alot of heat near the bushings.

Whats odd is that if they were over heated and softened up, the forces applied to the rear Aarm would have forced the arm forward, not backward. Maybe too much time on the brakes (JK).

I ride damn near WFO all the time too.... We even get to do turns....LOL.. I couldn't imagine riding straight line flats most of the time.... I would love the clean up time you have tho..
What makes you think we drive flat, straight lines???

If I could make a few bucks I could prolly cut some down in a lathe... I just dont want to spend a ton of time manually cutting them down for people to come back and say its just a cheap plastic bushing why does it cost whatever it cost.... I have no idea what Delrine cost but I could look into it if there was enough interest.

I don't...It was JK....Just not same terrain as on the Mtns of WV ... I do wish all I had to do was just give mine a quick spray and never get it scratched up....
True true...but believe me...I got a shitload of desert pinstripes on my Mav already. Sage brush and tumble weeds do a good number on your plastics...
