Rear Trailing Arm Bottom Bushings

The metal casing on my rear trailing arm bottom bushings are severely rusted but the rubber bushings looks intact. I purchased the items below and was wondering if these have to be pressed into the trailing arms or if they just fit in place with the bolt going through? How are these replaced?

Press fit. Tighten the bolts with the vehicle on the ground or you will shorten the bushing life.

I've always just swapped the entire arm.

You can insert a piece of wood or a socket, to stop the arm from being crushed closed.
