Rear upper bushing sleeve

I bought some sr rear control arms and when taking the old bushings out ok the housing, I damaged the metal sleeves for the upper part.
Does anyone know what these are called where to get any by themselves.

Thanks

I take it you have a pre-05 mustang. If so you will need a UCA bushings press tool.
Here is a link Maxi Mo for the bushings,

You could try spraying the sleeve with WD 40 before using the press tool.

Ya it's a 94. Have you ever Installed polys on the these before? Sucks cause I just need the sleeves cause others are damaged, or I just suck it up and buy the reg style bushings with o e already attached.
Ya that's nice to know. Probably could dupe that with some parts around the garage.

I do not recommend going with any polyurethane bushings in the upper control arms. You will increase suspension bind not good and could possibly damage the torque boxes. I would just replace them with OEM rubber bushings.

I would get the Maxim Mo bushing press tool because it will install the bushing
in the axle to the correct depth.

I guess when ppl buy a set of arms, they disregard the poly bushings for the torque box and just use a rubber bushing.
