With the leaf bushes I was having the same issue three times. In the end I used niloc nuts on the rear and Loctite green on the front and only nipped them up enough so they ther was no play. This allowed for the leafs to flex without resistance; so far 15k and all is holding up well. I also used caliper grease on all the bushes and this may or may not have helped but it sure has not hurt.

Congratulations, Hamsteh.
Thanks a lot mate! Been a long time coming, but hopefully passed these last few exams and should get my pieces of paper in a month or two!

Today I pulled the bullbar off to allow the installation of my chassis plates and then finished off the steering box fitment, what a fun job....

Plates are all fitted and painted with underbody deadener.
Steering box brace was a failure, it fitted perfectly due to using a front clip as a template but the engine was in the way, so I cut one end off and just fitted the drivers side so it will at least help a bit till I can get around to making a new one...
