bones has been running an oem bushing style on his rear engine buggy and is very happy with it. ive run the standard carrier bearing from surplus center. seem to get about a year out of them before you need to replace them.
i like that design your looking at. i think branik also makes a custom carrier bearing like that. but again its all expensive.
I ran 2" 7075 alluminium links on my last buggy and loved them. but stepping up to 1.25 heims i would probably step up to 2 1/4 or 21/2 links.
my new cruiser is running 2" 1/4 wall dom. i know they will end up bending but it was cheaper than alluminium and worked with the weld in bungs i got with my ruff stuff heim kits.
