Never mind figured it out. Im silly. Still cant get the bushing in. How would the sleeve go on after the bushing. Wouldnt taking the sleeve out cause the spring eye to "collapse"? HELP!!!

Well my cell service sucks but aren't your new bushings 3 piece? We are talking you rear leafs correct? The bushings should come apart one bush goes in on each side then the metal sleeve goes down the center on the back u don't use the sleeve (shakle side) if you have stock shackles. Unless ur new front bushings look exactly like stock you need a hydro press to get them in
