I'll be replacing those two bushings with massive poly ones and press em into my stock dog bone. As for the driver side, how are the poly ones. I don't want unnecessary vibration but I don't want to be replacing these again.
Yes the passenger side is the only one with oil in it. As far as the dog bone polyurethane inserts, you don't have to have them pressed in. I managed to press them in by hand using my 230lbs of weight. You have to use a specific type of grease that acts as a glue that will hold the inserts in place. Otherwise without the grease the large insert will keep sliding out.
