door bushings

I am trying to install some new brass door hinge bushings. I have got the old ones out but the new bushings seem too long. I cannot get them to go all the way down into the hinge. I've tried hitting them with a dead blow and a regular clawhammer and they will not go in any further. Should you have to cut these down before putting them in? I wouldn't think they would be universal bushingsI got them at JEGS..

has anyone else had this problem?

We're supposed to have door bushings? Is that why my door sags? Dang.

Maybe my first reaction, but if they are brass the will peen. Maybe you can draw them in with a c clamp.
I see my loose bushings as an asset, makes it easy to install and remove the doors
