I did nap a lot last year when running at back of the pack on Hell's. Six hours to run and 4.5 hours was sitting waiting for you guys up front to go up and down the domes.... :D :wall:

Crush sleeve or center sleeve may be a better term.

Are we talking about the bolt sleeve floating/encased in the bushing?

Yup, these are slightly different as they are poly not rubber, but yes the inner sleeve the bolt goes through.

Ended up doing the two outboard bushings first, which I have. Just need to get some installed and do the instructions.

This one will get done, most probably within a couple of months.

My Speedy fix is holding up VERY well, had to tighten the bolt once when I noticed some backlash in the drivetrain, maybe add a locknut to the top? 20k mi now on that bushing set, great fix. :)

Even if you did have to replace it yearly its worth it I think.
Defiantly after discovering that mine is loose... Old H3 never did it, new H3 never been offroad yet and it needs it...

What exactly were the symptoms of your backlash in the drivetrain? My 3 is currently clunking when accelerating and then decelerating quickly, such as in stop and go traffic where you might hit the gas and then let off quickly. It really exhibits the play when I put it in 3rd. The drivetrain just feels loose. I'm hoping the clunk is this bushing and not another problem, I haven't taken out the crossmember to confirm, thought I'd ask you all first.
