I've been looking at using a set of bronze kingpin bushings on my rig (yj, d60's, 40's) but it sees a lot of street time and the bronze bushings are advertised as offroad use only. Is the "offroad only" just to legally cover their ass? Does anyone run them on a DD? pro's con's? (please move if deemed not hardcore)

i havent finished putting together my front 60 but i have bronze bushings and artec arms. my rig will see a good amount of on road use as well. i dont see how it would matter. it's a better all around set up. to bad they didnt come from the factory like that.

Old Dodge power wagons ran bronze kingpin bushings but when they
Wore you had to re shim the knuckle I would think the self adjusting feature of the spring style arms would be better

I personally dont see a problem with it. I have a couple friends that have put lots of miles on rockwell rigs and they have bronze bushings. I know its not apples to apples, but same general concept. Im putting together a D60 for my tow rig and it will get bronze bushings in it. My $.02
