I just changed out shocks and before installed i pulled the rubber bushing out of shock and cut it in half for the top or frame end.. removed old shocks, pulled old rubbers out, I then slid the front side half of cut bushing on shaft, put shock on the snugged it up on the bushing, slid back side and reinstalled washer and nut tighting till i see the rubber blug out a bit. good to go.
