I've had custom bushings made to offset like this. I think the most I've gotten is about .010" change in length. I bought a set of the 20/20 bushings a couple of years ago or so, but didn't use them. Had the custom ones made instead.

What bore size are you wanting, I will be running 13 new sets in a couple weeks and will be giving them a 3 side ceramic coating, and I also have Kennedy's permission to copy the design..

Another good idea... I planned on bushings to equalize rod length anyway.

And I think my machine work has taken as long as the pistons...
