There's like a 1/16''-1/8''gap Between the bushings inside once inserted/pressed in, bushings were flush with ferule.
Here's some more pics of the knuckle bushings and pins, the last 3 pics of bushing and pin are dry wiped.
The side of the pin that had the most pressure applied is just worn not as rusted as the other side of the pin. I'm really getting tired of these poly bushings, would the Delron bushings be better or not have enough movement (too hard)? I assume ALL the bushings should be replaced, control arms etc., in order for everything to work correctly?
I also installed these almost a year and the half ago, no lube except the energy suspension pre-lube, on the knuckle bushings only never lubed after that. The rest were lubed regularly.
I really miss my solid axles! IRS, IMO suck for drag racing, great for handling, and I like that, I just have to redo the whole rear suspension, make it strong as possible, the HammerHead is going in next w/4.11's, I guess I'll do it when I install that, it will need it with a lot more torque on the suspension from the lower gears.
