A friend of mine in the U.S. has also said the Clausse studios R1 bushes have failed so wants to buy from the U.K. so this really isn't as easy as it should be.

i originally had a set of clauss studios a few years back they failed when i was tightening it up. they refunded and claimed it was a faulty batch - even so good job they failed at this point.

I'm having some nyloc nuts machined down to half size if anyone's interested. Only in steel I'm afraid, but they're not that expensive. I've also got some stainless shims (or washers to most people :roll: ). The nuts should be ready Tomorrow (Saturday).
PM me if interested.

As far as I'm aware there has been no problems with the nylon bushes that myself and others are selling.........avoid brass and stainless!!!
