16. We asked Doug Norrdin about the Del-a-lum bushings and he explained, “These bushings were designed by Global West back in the ’80s and are considered the best in the business. The six-surface design provides movement like a bearing would have. The bushing has an aluminum housing with a Delrin insert, steel sleeve, and outer thrust washers. They are lubricated through a grease fitting, and the housing is channeled with a grease groove. The bushing provides uninterrupted movement straight up and down with no bind. This takes deflection and bushing bind, which affects spring rate, out of the equation.” As a bonus they don’t squeak and have a lifetime warranty.
