Upper control arm buahings

So I just got these new control arms & polyurethane bushings but I don't know if I'm supposed to pull out that sleeve that the old bushings were in or press these in to the sleeve & I don't know why it's 2 pieces because the other one wasn't like this. Does anyone know how I can go about doing this?
Thanks.

Well if those are energy suspension bushings they are two piece and you need to take sleeve out and use the provided grease to lube the pin and hole because the factory bushings use the rubber bonded to the steel sleeve that twists then reruns to it's original position where as the poly urethane bushings only moving part is the steel sleeve in the bushing which is why you need to lube the sleeve. Also with the polyurethane bushing you don't have to tighten the through bolt in the bushings resting position either which makes for easier instalation

Okay thanks. Yes it is energy suspension bushings, I thought that might be how it works but the poly bushings fits very loose inside that poly sleeve. Will it fit tighter when it's all together?
