if you take one of the plastic bushings to any local machine shop they could duplicate it in bronze for you. don't know what they would charge for their services- i own a shop so i don't have to pay for my parts when i need something. if they want a excessive amount of money maybe i could help out .

Well, since you own a shop what would be a reasonable quote?

walked out to shop to look at what is left of e-cliff's 60f. 1 plastic bushing broken up to much to measure. other bushing appears to have a rib on o.d. of bushing at very top and then missing the rest of the length of the bushing- been also damaged . is the o.d. of a new bushing round or is there a full rib about 1/16'' wide the full length of the bushing on the o.d.? this will determine time and cost to make them.......

damm!- bushings are going to be time consuming and expensive to make. machined from solid stock approx. 100.00 each depending on what the local shop hourly rate is and cost of materials- it might be cheaper to just replace plastic bushings every couple of years- how much do new plastic bushings cost? the plastic bushing is the expendable part in the assembly-it is supposed to wear out. by the way scott i dont know you but tom mossberg had lot's of good things to say about you and your rig. i gave him the d70f for his toyota and made the custom 4140 alloy high steer arms for it. maybe i'll meet you on the trail one day............;)

welder boy builds nice stuff- i've seen his work also seen his rig at rubicon on memorial day and july 4th and labor day at fordice his stuff works very well. tapered roller bearings top and bottom are the way to go on a 60f - a lot more money- but you get what you pay for don't forget about his custom knuckles to go with the bearing conversion- his skills are exceptional. some people can't afford the stuff they would like to own. maybe there is a market for a upgrade on the plastic bushing that is used on king-pin 60f ? maybe not- this post might determine that- maybe gear man and welder boy will be developing a new product line!!
