[APD] Bushings

         Very stiff, you would not be able to deflect one by hand. Figure 
they are in the suspension of a car that weighs around 2000 
pounds.  Depending on where they are they could be supporting a lot of weight.
         Maybe a shock absorber mounted sideways from a stud in the wall 
and the frame of the tank.  (a long time ago I earned a degree in 
automotive technology).  My only concern is they are not designed to work 
in that position and have a lot more travel than you'd want.
