Sounds like a lot of work to save $23 and maybe end up with a repair that does not hold up long term. I'd try hard to get the proper bushings to fit correctly.well, then i will have the wrong size bushings! id rather get one new outer shell than 4 new bushings again. yes, i did read the older threads with the same issue. prob going to press the 3 new bushings in the existing outer shells and try to restore the damaged shell or fabricate a new one.
