Yeah, it's obviously like Preston pointed out years ago and many people have reinforced. Anything beyond rubber runs the risk of being squished so hard that all it can do is tear apart. Oh well, TBSCShop sells the stainless steel sleeves, bushings and washers for $180 so that's on it's way. I have scheduled to run a track day on May 1st at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course so I have to get this ironed out before then.
