by "leaking" bushings he must mean something that is filled with grease, like a ball joint or tie rod end. they have rubber boots filled with grease to keep the moving parts lubricated. if the boot is torn the grease leaks out, the joint dries out and wears quickly and can seize up. parts 1 and 6 on the diagram look like they have such grease-filled boots. I think one is called the torque strut and the other the cross strut in the Hayes manual, and I htink they each have a ball joint at one end.
