Lippert Never Fail Bushings

The heavier shackles will be an upgrade, but the bushings? What magical material has Lippert come up with now? Personally, I would go with a wet bolt kit from Mor/Ryde.

I used them with our Excel for about 4 years before we had the MorRyde IS installed. I never detected an issue with them. That was probably 2012 to 2016.

I have NeverFail bushings on my 2013 Excel Winslow 34IKE GVWR 17.5K lbs. I have 50K+ miles on them. I inspected a pair when I removed and replaced a broken spring at 20K miles. They showed no wear and looked fine. IMHO they are superior to traditional bronze bushings in wet bolts.
