Radius Arm Bushing Question

This is my first time posting and new to Rovers so please be gentle. I think I have an intelligent question here. I purchased QT 3 degree correction radius arms for my 2000 Disco II with a RTE 3" lift to help correct my castor issue. However, the bore of the axle to radius arm mounts are 65mm diameter x 56mm long... The stock radius arm bushing has a 72mm diameter with a hard nylon outer ring and will not press into the mount. I have e-mailed QT with no answer... I have e-mailed all the US suppliers of parts with no results AND have e-mailed a few poly bushing manufacturers. I'm sure there is a simple solution here I just don't know about. Any help would keep me sane!

Thanks!

Craig

Thats why I posted his phone number and not a email address. Most parts guys don't have time to check email but a few times a day. Phones are usually on them and easily answered.

Also don't forget when you call him to remind him his tires suck.
