of grit could get in there and puff games up !, bearings get destroyed ..

personally i take the bearing over the bushing everytime... the bearing has a lip seal on 1 end to keep the grease in if installed correctly, and 2nd, i never grease a bushing, ull be pulling it back out in months if u do... the bushing needs to be impregnated with atf. ( u can actually see the fluid come out the sides. use ur finger to plug the center, take a cup with fluid and pour in hole till at top, then use ur thumb to press..) it will last either way with good install practices.
