    Alieron bushings

    I have noticed some play in my ailerons and have traced it back to the rod ends and bushings. Does any have a reliable source other than Rapid for the bushings?Also in examining the rod ends I am able to feel a movement in the ball, while not much this slight movement at both ends transmits to quite a bit of movement in the ailerons. I have a new rod end and seem to sense the same movement in the ball, Any ideas??

    Rod end play should be about 0.003 radially. Because of the geometry,
    the end-to-end play is about 3 to 4 times that. Bushing to pin play
    should be somewhere around the same, 0.003. These clearances can add
    up. Don't overlook the pin (bolt) as a source of the play. These pins
    can wear out sometimes faster than the bushing. They're not supposed
    to but they can.
