I like it as well. Mose built many cars that I like but I guess he just went off the deep end at some point. Anyway....... yes I think that chassis was ahead of it's time and you could/would be able to build a very nice car based off the design. If I were to build another car with a arms , I would design it with bushing pivots at the frame and heims at the outer ends.

You think that the small square slots in the bushing material are for grease retention? If so I would not use grease on a plastic bushing. Grease gets in the pores of the plastic and plug's up the lubertisidy of the material.     

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

well i believed they were for grease. i did not plan on putting regular grease in there i actually planned on putting chain lube made for sand applications in there. i use to build front ends with bushings on the lower a arms and that the lube i used on them when i assembled them. they did not have groves cut across them like these. these are quite a bit thicker and wider than the ones i used on the front ends. i actually bought these to try on my front end 10 or so years ago but never did as i just put heims on it. any time we can delete a heim and go to a bushing it sure quiets down one area.

Never mind,I just need to open my eyes. LOL!! They are made from polyurethane and unless they are lubed,they will squeak like a mofo and wear out. If they were made from delrin/nylatron/something similar I would definitely agree with fast. I would hesitate to use PU for our application.

This grease is made for poly bushings, very tacky and will last a long time

Nope. Delrin would be my choice
