I've read (in a performance handling book) that poly-eurothane bushings
were NOT the way to go. They tend to seize up in the casing. This same
book recommended (rather highly I might add) Nyliner bushings. These are
metal bushings with replaceable (every year, or earlier for track use)
nylon inserts. This setup is notably more expensive than eurothane, but
was said to be far superior, since the nylon inserts were replaceable.
Any other opinions? Eric?
