Eventually I’ll probably do that. Had the bitches on hand though and this fucker in my garage takes up valuable parking for my truck. Hence, thrown together and kicked the fuck out. I’m really curious how long they will last, as is. Shits coming back apart in what I hope is 6-8 months to redo the front end. See how fuckerd up it is then.Sheeet, you got a lathe. Get some fucking bronze and make a new bushing with the correct OD. Then you will have plenty of meat to get groovy in.
So why couldn't you just run the needle bearings?
