Pure Perfomance Track Bar Problems

Has anyone had a problem with the crap bushing on the end of the Pure Performance Track Bar? My bushing is worn out after 10K miles and they says its because I used the track bar to center the axle. Is that not what its for? I need to replace it but an sure it just going to wear out again based on my current experience. Why dont they just use a solid end? I have to get this fixed ASAP because I have a serious death wobble over 70mph if I hit a bump.

The bar itself os pretty heavy duty, but it needs a heim joint on the end. I just ordered a new bushing from Pure Performance for $15 + shipping. They claim to have redesigned the bushing material which screams the sound of crappy busbings. If this one does not last, i will figure out how to get a heim joint on the frame end of the trackbar. I will say i am not confident the replacement bushing is a permanent fix.

Interesting I found this tonight...I just noticed my front end getting a little floaty tonight on the way home...guess which bushing is toast???

I have to say that the pure performance kit overall is AWESOME. Very impressed with all of the parts and quality is second to none, but looks like the track bar bushing may need some work.

I've got 30k miles on mine
