if you go into the arctic chat paid sponsors forum sanny makes some bushings that are supposed to be top notch(i havent used them yet as my machine isnt even a yr old). But from what everyone else said they are superior to the stock ones that you can get from cat.

I think he only does the shock bushings, but it won't hurt to PM him.

he's working on the other's, maybe he'll chime in with a progress report. airdam said he might be able to make some also.

wyo has a write up on using bronze bushings but you gotta ream the arm holes.

while you are diggin into it, you may wanna tap a hole for some grease fittings on your a-arms. i had a set of a-arm bushings made from uhmw poly plastic and they still wore out.

This sounds really strange to me. I wore out my shock bushings and put Sanny's on, but I have never replaced the A-Arm bushings. I checked mine for play about a month or so ago when I had it all apart, and they were tight as can be.

they might seem tight apart, grab your upper a arm and watch it wiggle together.

yep already wore out 2 sets of a arm bushings and collers.
so on the last teardown i decided to buy a bag of grease fittings and drill my a arms.
now all my suspention bushings are greasable, it also made the suspention smooth instead of bind.
so far so good 400 miles and no sighnes of any play.
