bushings for back of leaf spring

I searched but didn't quite find the answer to the question i have. I bought new shackles and the kit includes a bushing for the spring but I don't know if it's going to work on a ranger. The bushing is basically 2 metal spacers with rubber sandwiched in. Is it a press fit into the spring or what? Thanks.

This is what i have: Dorman - OE Solutions Rear Position Leaf Spring Shackle Kit 722-001: Advance Auto Parts

the bushings for the leaf springs and shackles are 2 different kits

the factory shackles already come with the rubber bushing and sleeve pressed in for you

poly urethane bushings are way better in regards to ride quality

energy suspension kit # 4.2133G/R are for the shackles only

energy suspension kit # 4.2154G/R are for the leaf springs only ( 2004 to 2011 model years only )

1998 to 2003 use a slightly smaller main eye bushing

follow up :::

the 4.2133G bushings will fit but need some material removed from the outer surface

not a direct fit
