i have done lots of front ends and i really think you will be ok as long as there is no deep groves or dings.... i would however flip it upside down and that way it will wear on the other side.... should be able to get same milage out of it the other way then replace

I gotta take a closer look at it but I dont think that bushing can be flipped... the whole slider tube is only $60 at zanotti I may just play it safe
