Note:  The contents of this write-up could not mirror the at present provided configuration from Teraflex.  Your management arms could or is probably not of the design proven on this write-up. 

As most of you already know, the Teraflex management arm bushings put on out simply, and you need to change them steadily.  Here is the issue that I’ve, and have seen on different Jeepers rigs.  The lip of the bushing begins to crack, thus letting the pin to slip out.

After paying $4.00 a chunk for the bushings by means of Teraflex, and needing 16 bushings to do exactly the 4 decrease management arms, somebody instructed poly bushings. Well, Daystar makes poly all the pieces proper? A membership member works for Daystar, so I contacted him and requested if he had something comparable. He requested me to mail him a Tera bushing and he would match it as much as a few of his bushings. I mailed him the package deal on Friday, and acquired a name from him on Monday, saying that he had 2 totally different bushings that would work. He despatched me 4 of every totally different bushing to check out in every arm.

Here are the totally different bushings, the Teraflex bushing is within the center.

As you’ll be able to see, the lip of the smallest bushing is smaller than the Teraflex one. The largest bushing has the identical dimension lip.


To change the bushings within the decrease management arms, take away one management arm at a time. You will want a 21mm socket and a 21mm open finish wrench for the bolts. You should take out the axle finish first, then slide it out of the body mount. After you might have the arm set on the bottom (or work bench), use a deep dish socket that’s simply smaller than the middle pin (if the pin just isn’t already falling out). After tapping it out, use a pair of pliers to take away the bushing.

After eradicating each bushings, set your new bushing in a single facet and faucet it in with a mallet. Turn the arm over, insert the middle pin tapping once more with the mallet, then set the opposite bushing over the pin, and faucet it in with the mallet. Very straightforward to do!

Here is the completed product.

The higher picture has the smaller bushings in it (and in addition the mount is a bit of bent), and the decrease picture has the bigger bushing it it.  Since it has solely been just a few days since I put them in, I’ll report again in a month or so to let you understand how they’re holding up.

Here are the scale for the Daystar bushings:

Part quantity M02240-BK-01    Larger Bushing
0.995/ 1.210/ 1.510 /1.880

Part Number M03280-BK-01   Smaller Bushing
1.000/ 0.875 / 1.500


It has been a number of months, and the Daystar bushings are working nice!  I dropped the arms to have a look, they usually regarded model new!  My final set of Teraflex bushings solely lasted just a few months, so I’m very glad with the poly bushings.  Dan at Daystar has made a equipment for the bushings.  The equipment incorporates 8 M03280-BK’s, the smaller of the two bushings that I examined.

Kit half quantity is KJ02038, any of your native Daystar sellers ought to have the ability to order this equipment from Daystar for you!  Or contact Goferit Offroad they usually can have the equipment drop shipped to your door!
