Default Energy Suspension Control Arm Kit

Question for anyone who has installed one of Energy's poly bushing kits on your control arms. I burned out my control arm rear bushing to salvage the "oval sleeve" but only came out with a basic regular one.

Am I able to use it like that or does anyone know where to get one of those by itself or a bushing that contains one.

Instruction manual I got:

Pic of what they should look like?

Took a chance and got an 07 Corolla Front C-Arm rear bushing, burned it out and got this...

Any help appreciated. This is the 8.3120R kit that is part of the master kit purchased for my 2010 tC.

Afternoo Scionlife, for all those who come across this same issue don't worry... I've solved it myself. The "oval sleeve" required is only found in our OEM Toyota control arms (Inner-rearward main bushing).
These cannot be found in any aftermarket Dorman, Mevotech, or other brand C-arms.

Like this below:

2010 tC Front Left: 48069-21020

Thanks for viewing and hope this helps anyone.

Thanks for posting this. That was my suspicion, but I don't have any way to check it. The aftermarket uses generic parts to keep costs down, so I'm not surprised. Glad you figured it out and shared it with everyone.

Stiffer more presise handling even when coupled with soft springs or shocks, expect ride comfort to decrease. Braking is more presice, less nose dive. I have been using the whole bushing kit installed for a good 6000 miles and have no issues/noises.
