Bushings work just fine for most applications. To use the bearings properly, you MUST index the bell housing to insure the bearing and shaft are running true.

If you have any slight diflection, the bearing will be loaded wrong and will fail. Usually when they fail, they keep the pilot shaft turning so you have to get the tranny into neutral or you will stay in motion even with the pedal floored.
