How in the world do you get the big sway arm bushing on over the end of the bar? It looks like it can't be done? Thanks!

Is it a stock bushing on a larger-than-stock bar?

It's a stock size perfomance bushing on a stock bar.

Mine were cut on the flat side if I remember right, so you can open it up and push it onto the bar.

Now I'll have to go home and make sure I'm not just seeing things. I don't think mine are cut but I could be smoking too much crack or something

Even with the slits, these bushings are not very flexable and will be a PNTA to get on (maybe thats why they sent 4 bushings and Brackets ???? same with the sway bar end links...
