DIY Bushing

When I removed one of the the rear shocks, I have to cut the bolt off with a torch. The bolt had rusted the lower bushing and would not come out. This destroyed the rubber bushing.

Unfortunately, it’s not available from the manufacturer. I found a set of bushings from Daystar, but the internal sleeve size was different than the stock bolt. It was too big.

I had recently been given the opportunity to be trained on the lathe at the CWRU thikbox, so I decided to make a bushing as my first real project!

Problem solved.
