My steering setup is a bit different than yours, but I have had the same bronze bushings in there for a few years and they are still going strong without any play in them. I bet yours will last a while as well; looks much better than the poly bushings. The one issue is the length of the bushings, or rather the distance between them. There is limited space on that side which is why Superlift made that idler the way they did. I moved my steering box forward so that I had more room for a larger idler.

Shame about the body damage. Comes with the territory though!

He needs tupperware bedsides, more forgiving than fiberglass.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Interesting idea.

Thanks for sharing. I wasn't aware that anyone else had switched to bronze. Glad to hear you've been running it that long. That's encouraging.
