I already have the slicone on them, really only need it to keep the grease from squiring out.

My other idea was to score the bushing with a chisel, and then pound it in.

I didn't say which way they were off, they are about 1/64 too small. I think the original bushings might of been oversized a little becsue they hard to get pounded out. Part of the trouble here is I don't have a good set of calipers. I have calipers but I need to measure them with a ruler after taking the measurement.

In any event they should work fine and if worse comes to worse I'll just have my Brother weld them in.
