Out with the old, in with a 2-piece bushing?
I assume the go at either end, each lining up with one of the 2 set screws?
Is this better than the one-piece that came out?
Thanks

Ford vs Chevy.  2 piece or 1 piece.  I did the 1 piece Johnson Duramax Cutless bearing.  Six inch. I believe it was the BADE bearing.

I went with the new style plastic or Delryn? bushing.   Installed easy, has near zero drag and has worked well.  I only have 100 hours on it so far but happy so far.    I think the plastic is the same stuff they use in Hip Joints and in automotive they use it in some tie rods and ball joints so it is pretty tough stuff.   The factory stuff lasted over 1000 hours and has a track record so you are back to Ford vs Chevy.
