What about delrin? I'll elaborate when I have more time BUT... "Family Man" from the other site has the sketch for that bushing. Delrin is pretty much maintenance free and it's perfect for when you want to precisely locate something like a control arm...

Delrin is HARD. Zero deflection, harder than poly hard. It's not appropriate for suspension bushings in my opinion. It's commonly used in things that need very minimal damping or areas where you can tolerate a bit of extra NVH. Case in point, the BMW crowd uses them for things like clutch pedal arm bushings, gear selector carrier bushings, and one loony used it for a flexdisk (damper between transmission and driveshaft) despite the warnings of the community for a very short period of time until he too agreed it's too hard for anything but maybe a track car.

You want SOME deflection in that bushing. Stiffen it up too much and you're defeating the purpose of a bushing. The suspension is intended to move a little.

Also, considering this is something that's a marketable solution in replacement of the stock (read: SOFT) solution, Delrin is not something many customers will get onboard with.
