    Any alternatives to the $16.00 brass bushings that are used on the jiffy stand ??? i need to replace them again , in just like 2 years and i think 16.00 is a lot for a couple of tiny bushings

    Any reason for them wearing out? Do you grease the stand when you do maintenance?

    Tell you what I would try. The company where my wife used to work (Applied Industrial Technologies) has branches in many cities across the US. I used to take bushings, sleeves and bearings into the walkin counter and they would match me up right on the spot. Have very reasonable prices (even if your wife don't work there). Especially if you buy like 5 of um.

    I been thinking, You ride on dirt roads much or live on one? That could cause a lot of abrasive to build up inside and cause premature wear?? Just a thought
