OK, the thread about the kingpin roller bearings got me thinking, i know dangerous subject.
Anyways, does anyone know if a bronze bearing has been designed to replace the plastic bushing in the D60?

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............;)

$100 will drive it right out of the picture, as you said. I'd rather carry a few plastic bushings.
