Looking better than factory.... Merry Christmas Tambien.
They should be sintered bronze ('Oilite').The swing arm I have had brass bearings in the arm.
Why then, did you remove them?I just knocked them out and they appear to be in ok shape.
Without the swingarm spindle and bushes in position then it's difficult for anyone to say.How bad do they need to be to need replacing?
The swing arm was (is) in such bad shape, I just assumed that it would be better to have new bushings while it’s apart.They should be sintered bronze ('Oilite').
Why then, did you remove them?
The bushes/bushings should be a tight fit in the swingarm as they move with the swingarm around the fixed (to the cradle) spindle.
The swingarm doesn't pivot on the bushes if that was perhaps what you were thinking?

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!From 14:12
Thanks baz. I’ve been told that and that’s what I’m planning on using. I was also told to wash them well in water after blasting.Please don't blast your cases with anything other than baking soda
If you bead blast them etc you will never be able to remove all the glass beads
