Anyone fitted Strongflex rear bushes?

Hi All,

Quick question, has anyone fitted Stronflex bushes to the rear of their GTV ?
I'm in the process and it seems the outer swingarm bush (011660B) is too small?
It is not a tight fit at all. Is this correct ?

Car is a V6

Fitted some this morning and found them a perfect fit. Bear in mind they will open out a bit once the metal sleeve is inserted and tightening the hub assembly will also compress them a bit. I found all of the bushes could be inserted by hand but needed a bit of force to get the metal sleeves in.

Forgive me for asking a silly question, but do you definitely have them in the correct end of the arm? I had to check a couple of times to make sure.
