Randy Owens If you are going to make your own, I suggest that instead of Nylon, you might try something that is simalar called UHMW. It will certainly last longer and is super slick. (Metal slides easily over and through it)
For more info, go to one of the plastic dealers websites, such as Cope Plastics.

Rokitman Cavemman, can UGH UGH UGH with the best of them but....Looks like nylons out there, I'm a welder not a machinist, would probably hurt myself on a lathe.
Does anyone have info on premade nylon for front ends on a '55.

willys36@aol.com I had a new main leaf spring made for my Willys. They used a nylon bushing instead of the stock brass bushing in the original spring.

4 Jaw Chuck Me like Bob, me make own bushings from bar nylon stock. Easy for even cave man like me. Ride quality not bad, caveman like it even. Use HDPE (High Density PolyEthylene) for bushings, has lower friction coefficient and is softer.

Works good...Uggggg.

Caveman like it for race cars and street cars.

You too?? The biggest problem with nylon is the
harshness of the ride, more of a crash across RR tracks than a heavy thump...

Nylon Bushings

I'm looking for input, info, gut feelings, or experiences with the use of nylon bushings, I'm converting to front disc on my '55 Delray (2" dropped spindles) and have read a few comments on the benifits of nylon over urathane and I'm looking for more. I hear there quiter but haven't heard any particular brand names out there, anything would help.
Thanks.
