    These were custom made by Fulcrum (95 duro) & still in good condition after a number of years.

    I had these made from a product called Acetal (commercial nylon) after doing some researching.
    Time will tell as to how they survive in the Little Blue Girl.


    Just pulled them out for a look & after two trips to Wakefield Park towing a trailer & doing several full days, they came out like new, so back in they go.
    These bushes just don't flex @ all & are self lubricating.
