Hello friends; I'm installing RC shocks in front for my k20 2" lift and there is a lot of space to fill in between the mounting ears. I called RC and they sent me the rubber cone spaces which will fill in the gap however no extended metal eyelets are provided and when I called them, they said none comes with it. The shock as is does have a metal eyelet already installed btw. Anyone have experience here? Thanks

That looks like a dual shock setup someone modified? Also I have rough country shocks and they definitely have metal sleeve in bushing

Here is the original shock setup. Looms like the eyelet extended beyond the bushing. I suppose I could cut an eyelet tube to fit the gap with the RC shock?

Some bushings have a long sleeve, factory had a spacer.

What worked was buying these bronze spacers from TSC...fit perfectly and solid.
