    I would like to know if the bushings for the part: Fab-BA200 are rubber or urethane. These are the 2" bushings kits in your Fab Parts sections. If they are rubber, can they be substitued or replaced by standard leaf spring urethane bushings?

    They will be used for the axle side and panhard ends of a 2 link with panhard front suspension.

    Thanks!

    ALL the BA's are urethane. For a panhard, you might consider a 1.75 with a hard compound bushing in it, that's what I'm using with a larger bolt and sleeve. If it's a straight bar, use a pair of hiems, they'll give you better steering response since they won't flex at all. If it's bent, you have to support it to keep it from flopping and a bushing assembly works OK.
    The BA200s would probably work on your radius for the front mounts, I'd recommend a big spherical joint for the frame end, either urethane or preferably steel.
