Hi, im asking here because there might be someone else wondering about the same issue; Is the problem solved on the new kits? I got mine in the mail today, and there are some bushings following. should i still use the factory ones? And do i have to grind of a bit that was explained in the beginning?

You use the factory sleeve, which will go in through the bushings with the link in the middle, like a sandwich. I'm not going to speak for Graham, but I'm assuming you have the newer version like mine. IIRC, they will look a bit different than the picture that DumbLuck posted.

Yes, it's a bit different, the edges is smoothed out a bit and the bushings is almost filling the entire part of the link, so it seems like the problem has been fixed on these.

That would be tricky with this setup, however, I don't think there is much need for them. These parts don't move all that far.
