Thanks for confirming! :-)

As for the sleeves, the reasons are obvious, I think:

1. The OD has to be large to make the soft urethane reliable, and this is why the Volvo factory lower trailing arm bush has a layer of steel in the middle of the rubber, too
2. The ID has to be a hair bigger than the bolt to keep it centred
3. It'd be expensive to make it semi hollow manufacturing wise.

The end

I don't think it's crap that they ship that way, I just want better, no biggy :-)
