The maximum continuous service temp for Delrin is 180 degrees. It melts at 352 degrees.

Why?

Alittle melt

Hi

Well looks like I have a little melt on the bushings on the knuckle.

I lost A rear brake pad, on the RR. I will take the knuckles apart on Saturday.

If you look at the date on the linked post, you'll see it's from 2008.

Thanks for the info Timb - hope you and the family are all doing well

Bushings

Hello

It is not a hi-jack.

This is about rear control arm bushings.
