Why would NEW bushing between drag link and inner tie rod go bad?
Last year I had my drag link and inner tie rod replaced. Within a couple of months, the bushing was shredded and just hanging there. Between the time I had those components replaced and noticing the bushing the truck had not been off road nor had it been in any aggressive driving situations.
So besides just being a bad part, what other factors could cause this?
I have a lot of oil/fuel residue down there due to a leak I haven't pinpointed yet and the mechanic thought that maybe that could have caused it but that doesn't make any sense to me.
