The OD of the black Delrin bushing is JUST over an inch, or 26mm...
Let me know what you measure on your car...maybe I can have it turned down if it's smaller.

Sounds like it's the same diameter...
I didn't use a caliper to measure the bushing, but being that close, I'm going to assume it's the same size as the Getrag's...

this really did help out a lot...ignore my last comment, I was expecting more of an outcome.

however, to further help eliminate my slop, i added 2 rubber washer to my homemade metal bushing (CNC'd) and there is no slop at all anymore! wonderful feeling with the added STS.



I am not sure if this can be added to the stock plastic bushing or not, but this is what I bought from homedepot
