F350 shock/strut installation

Got some BDS shocks for my 97 350. Front shocks use the steel sleeves in the bushings for the top and bottom mounts. The rear shocks use the sleeves for the bottom mount but the upper rear shock mounts seem to have a stud that is to thick to use a bushing sleeve.Is the sleeve part of the mount? As in does the new shock bushing just slide over the mount shaft/bolt that is on the truck?

Maybe this answer can help someone else out later on. The rear upper shock mounts you do not use a bushing sleeve. Just slide the bushing in the shock eyelet over the mount with grease. And if your lower bolts are rusted and messed up like mine use 3 inch long 1/2 inch grade 8 bolts and nuts.
