I am changing the cradle bushings in my '86, SE from aluminum to polyurethane (hopefully to eliminate some noise). I don't remember if there was a sleeve around the original rubber bushings that I need for the polyurethane. It looks like something is missing. Do I need something from the original bushings to use the polyurethane?

OE front bushing is the same design as control arm bushings. Polyurethane uses the outside shell of the OE rubber.
OE and polyurethane uses the same two metal pieces to locate and clamp them in place.
