Default Energy Suspension Rear Diff Bushing

Did some searching but only found info for the solid bushing install.
Does the sleeve have to be reused w the poly bushing?
or does the bushing go in by itself.
still searching. all help is appreciated.
thanks

Here are a few pic of mine. You will reuse the inner one.

easiest to cut the bushing out and clean up the inner bushing.

remove the whole oem bushing from the subframe, its a pain to get it out. once its out cut out the center sleeve out to reuse it with the energy poly bushing, you will most likely have to remove excess rubber from the original sleeve to be able to push it into the energy bushing ....

If I remember one side of the bushing on the diff. has a shoulder. I think it is on the top side so you need to turn the diff upside down and pound away. Take a big hammer to it. Also dont forget to plug the diff drain tube with a screw or you'll have a mess.
