This it what I have always done. I would hit the bushing with a grinder till it was flush.

OK a little update.

I wish I would have taken a photo but i was hard at it and all greasy.

The bushing I'm using were too long, so I trimmed the "shaft" of one of them to make the total length of the two shorter.

I compared my OEM pins with the ones that came with my shackles and they are the same. I believe the bushings were too long and that was causing the issue.

I plan on riding this Saturday and will thoroughly test them!
