Dodgy polybushes - but a good mod

Bought these from Witor (new on the left- modded Avon Metalastic original on the right) and he did say that he didn't give any warranty as they weren't made to his spec.

Turns out the 7/16" (11.1mm) hole is actually 12.3mm - which is good for nothing metric or imperial. Bit silly really - they are meant to improve location not rattle around. Ended up drilling it out to 1/2" and will find some suitable grade 8 bolts to fit - will actually be stronger in the end.
