With the extended you need the adjustable I thought...

Have fun, the install isn't hard, I just did this a couple weeks ago.

If they're hard to get out you may have to drill the rubber out then knock the metal sleeve out by folding it in on itself with hammer and chisel.

Yea, I had to use a sawzaw to cut wedges in the original bushings then I was able to take them out. Pain in the butt. I tried all sorts of "normal" things like wasting $90 on a bushing removal tool (stripped the threads right off the first try and that was by hand). With the sawzaw, they were out in 2 minutes flat.
