When you say five years, do you mean that they're worn out, or just not
quite "up to snuff" after five years?
(I like to replace parts effecting safety, handling and/or reliability
somewhat before they are worn out)

My first 67 Sprite needed new trunnion bushings in 1972, so the
originals lasted 5 years. I failed inspection due to them.
I have bought plenty of new bushings over the years and the rubber ones
last about 5 years. Same as the originals. In fact I do believe the ones
I get from a lister are the original brand. Metalestic
Now I do not nor have I ever bought moss rubber so YMMV.
