Yes

How hard are they to change?

Piece of Cake

What after market brands are there?

None that I know of.

:thumbsup:

Don't do that, you'll hurt yourself

What makes you think you need them?

if you know how to change the fork(oil) seals ,you can change the bushings. i don't know of any aftermarket suppliers for the bushings ,but the best deal i could find at the time i was doing it was at bikebandit.com. and i bought the two tools for takeing the forks apart from rocky mountain.follow yor manual and you should'nt have any problems.oh! and change your oil and dust seals while your at it.

Just had my bushings replaced last weekend. They were wore out in my 06 and now with the new ones in anlong with new wipers and seals and a fresh change of oil it feels brand new now.

when bushings are shot you can see the teflon flakeing off. They are not that hard to inspect given you have the cap wrech.
