    That's interesting. Dunno about the $250, but I'd try it out for free! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Must be pretty proud of it, with the disclaimer and all...

    Wes was talking about making something like abuot 10 months ago. Looks pretty sweet though...

    He said it was a standard bearing. So who will be the first on Ck5 to figure out what Timkin bearing he is using?

    Neat idea, but there is no way to seal that bearing from the environment. Mudders need not apply.

    It will be just as sealed as the nylon upper bushing. You just have to grease it after an outing.

    Now with this and if someone would adapt a setup like the bearing buddie to keep trailer axles greased. Then just fill it with grease every so often. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    I like the idea a lot, but I fail to see where the $200 pricetag comes from. if he's so pissed about copies, it must be easy to make. glad my machinist is on speed-dial

    Nice deal, wonder if it still used the spring to preload or if it gets "hard" shimmed to establish preload??? Did anyone look at his other auctions? He's sellong D60 caliper brackets that accept 1/2 or 3/4 ton front calipers. What's the point? $250 to save some grinding maybe?

    Like it was quoted above....Welderboy on POR makes and supplies these with his one-off bomb-proof knuckles.

    Last I heard, thru the grapevine, that these bearings to eliminate the plastic bushing, are off road use only. Meaning that they will not survive to the everyday use of driving, etc. unless you want to carry a grease gun with you everywhere you go. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    What I'm trying to figure out on this bearing kit on eBay is since the bearing is shorter in heigth than the plastic bushing, what is offered to take up the slack to get the spring to compress under the cap? Sounds like you gotta stack several washers to make up for the bushing thickness.

    I do like the idea of a tapered bearing to take place of the plastic bushing, but until someone can design one that would basically be "maintenance-free" (hint: drive it and forget it), we are probably gonna be stuck with these plastic ones for the time being. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
