    The seals cannot wear unevenly until the bushings have worn unevenly. I agree that there should not be large sideways or canted forces acting on the through-hull bushings once everything is installed. That will maximize service life of the bushings and the seals.
    I have purchased a couple of these kits from SBT, will these work on my ‘02 Genesis Skis?
