Body Bushing Removal

A couple of my frame to cab bushings have deteriorated pretty badly. Seems odd for only being a 2008 model truck, but it looks like several trucks have this issue. I have decided to replace all of the bushings, but am having trouble getting the lower separated from the upper insulator. The 15mm bolt is removed from the bottom (had to get a wrench on the 22mm cage nut above due to it spinning). I have tried to pry the lower piece from the upper using screwdrivers, then a pry bar, and even a 3 jaw puller. All that accomplished was slightly bending the lower insulator metal retainer. The rubber portion is pretty much non-existent at this point, however, I still can't see what is holding it in place. Am I missing something? I am still working on only the far front two for now.

I have the Daystar replacement bushings, so am trying to reuse the factory metal pieces.

Does anyone have any good pictures of how they fit together? I can't seem to find anything online.

Well, I think I have it figured out. Still haven't gotten the front two off, but moved on to the others and those came apart much easier, just a little persuasion with a pry bar. I guess the front two will need to be cut out and replaced.

When I replaced mine with Daystar mounts I was able to install all of them except the front two. They had to be cut out.
