I solved the arm problem by boxing them. As far as the bushing is concerned, you could use a press in ballistic joint and make a stronger custom bracket that is wider for more flex.

Anyway, no reason for that much round here so I just pulled mine out and am waiting for the weather to clear so I can put my staright axle under it!

If you are interested in the arms I pulled off, let me know!
I should have mentioned that I also planned to box/truss the beams and reinforce the hell out of any bracket/mounting points. 12" of travel is a lot for Michigan but I plan to keep and wheel this thing everywhere I go. So it will be nice for some places and overkill for others. I for some reason am interested in how far can this style of suspension be pushed before everything become a custom set up. Also PM sent.
