I noticed that most A arm pivots are heims while rear trailing arms have Bushing on the inside & heims on the outside ??

Why most builders do not use bushings ( poly, Delrin, etc) + sleeve doesn't that make the pivot stronger against torsional load ( larger area ) ???

Hello Egypt, A arms and trailing arms are totally different. The bushing is used to hold the trailing arm upright in the (front) and the heim allows for articulatin and adjustment in the (Rear)
