It looks more worn down there and would allow the pivotting that appears to be causing damage.

For busihings in an application where only one side of a rotating shaft is suppoted, multiple measurements down the length of the bushing are required. Also, you need to take measurments in numerous radial directions. Your wear appears to be an out of round issue. Some directions can show true and others highly worn. Bushings in this application can wear very differently than those where both ends of the shaft are supported.

Checked for out of round...all within .0005. Of course this is with my Harbor Freight calipers.
