Were there any bushings that went on the spider that the gears fit on in the rear axle or was it steel to steel?

The early Ts had bronze bushings. Later cars were steel-on-steel.

Marvin, cars up to about 1913 had bronze bushings. Later cars didn't.

THANKS! We are getting ready to rebuild a rear axle and were in question on that. I have three sets of spider and gears, so we will go with the best ones.
