Another BB question...

Would like to order a BB for my WJ but I'm debating between poly vs delrin vs abs spacers. Any thoughts or experiences on using these materials in a BB with regards to durability?

Obviously the harder the material the longer it's going to last. But I prefer poly/rubber because it has a little bit of "give" to it and will maintain better ride quality.

Yeah I was leaning poly. In my experience ABS is brittle, hence my concern.

I agree, and the black poly/rubber ones look almost factory, where as the red ones or metal ones look aftermarket
