Is that a new installed bushing? Looks awfully clean in there; you can even 
see the hole where the Zerk feeds in.

Beautiful. So many of those show bad wear by now. The small diameter part 
looks longer than normal. Did you have to turn that down to a smaller 
diameter to clean it up? If so, that would be the advantage to making your 
own bushings. It would also take a pretty large lathe and some clever 
fixturing to center it and then clear the trailing arm.
