The thing is you need to tailor your material to the application, To that 
end I'm only replacing the subframe bushings, which after replacement 
don't really move, so Delrin is fine.

The problem that I have with the Nyliner bushings is that nylon is a very 
soft material and to expect that it will last for a year on the street is 
totaly unreasonable. Street conditions are hell on bushings...
