Re: Rear Inner Fulcrum Shaft Bearing Tubes - Material ?

John Wrote: The rear subframe already has eccentric bushes and they are held in place by welds. The bushes that the inner fulcrum shaft passes through on the frame itself are eccentric, no doubt to allow manufacturing tolerances to be zeroed out on a jig before welding them in place.

Hello Andrew,
They're made by Federal Mogul, or Federal Mogul owns the company. Nothing wrong with them; I use them all the time when rebuilding V12 engines and have no negative issues. Google Nüral and you will get plenty of hits.
