The bushings I like the best are the uprated rubber ones, although they were
a bit for difficult to install.
Question: I've had two different urathane bushings and in each case the
metal sleeve was longer than the bushing, whereas the uprated rubber ones
the sleeve was an exact fit.
I am thinging that the extra length of the sleeve caused excess movent and
cause the first set of poly bushing to develop slope. I hope it doesn't
happen to the 2nd set.
Was the sleeve trom TRF polys exact or was it a bit long?
