They shouldn't. Loosen the nut and see if the bolt will spin inside of the LCA bushing (mark the alignment tabs to the frame to make sure you don't mess up your alignment in the process). Honestly, unless you have a reason to replace the bushings, I wouldn't mess with it just yet unless you can get the bolts out, grease them, then reinstall them. If the bushings are still good, it doesn't matter if they're rusted in or not.

If you get them, post up your review. I'd be curious to see how they hold up and they've got to be easier to install. The metal bushings were a little tough to press into the rusty LCA.

Sounds like you're fine. For comparison, I had a box wrench on mine with a 4' pipe and mine wouldn't budge. I could get the nuts off but that was it, the bolts wouldn't spin inside the sleeves.
