I'm finally getting down to the short strokes of a very lengthy TR6 frame up restoration. I've installed the steering rack using poly bushings to replace the rubber bushings. Using vise grips I've been able to reduce the space between the clamp and mounting to about 3/16". Can't quite get it to 1/8". Given the rigidity of the poly bushings compared to the rubber bushings should I really be able to crush the poly bushings down to only an 1/8" gap?
