Prothane Sway bar bushings !help please!

Anyone install these or seen an install? I found the how to on the forum but it didnít talk about having this problem.

Recieved the prothane sway bar bushings in to replace my stock worn Ones but the prothane is a full poly bushing with no seperation in the bushing like the stock one. I canít get this prothane bushing to slide over sway bar end where it attaches to the end link. Should I split the bushing like the oem one so I can fit it onto the sway bar?

id try a little grease and see if you can get it to go, if not just split it with a sharp knife. try to get a single clean cut.

I greased the hell out of them and still couldnít get them over the flat end of the sway bar. Made a clean split and they went on. No noise and they look ok after a few drives.
