I don't understand, that diagram shows the left wheel but it would seem you need to replace the wheel itself, not sure about that bushing you speak of.

xxl, replace the pivot arm as well as anything else that appears to be worn. Any worn parts not replaced may cause premature wear on replaced parts. I've repaired hundreds of those units when I was in a Toro shop and they are a super little unit. When we hit a repair of this nature, everything from the deck on out was replaced--just a precaution against comebacks. You have to use your own judgment on the amount you want to spend on an older unit. Check the condition of the deck engagement button on the back side of the spring arms--when they get loose they will eat up the cast aluminum deck notches.

The 2 and 4 stroke Suzuki equipped Toro cast aluminum deck models were superb units and if serviced properly, would last for years. Each of my kids have a similar unit that I rehabbed from junked out units and they are still running. The problem now is that Suzuki parts are very pricey, if not discontinued. I had one come in recently with a bent crank and if I remember, a replacement crank was in excess of $250.
