The bushing manufacturer sends those along with the control arm bushing kits, they are not needed and can be discarded. The manufacturer intended them to slip over the small side of the bushing once the bushing is installed in the control arm. OEM bushing do not include this ring

over drill them and weld in a sleeve!!

Depending on how the sway bar attaches the strongest method would be to drill thru both sides and weld in the correct size sleeve for mounting a sway bar bracket. In this fashion the overall integrity of the arm would not be altered.

In the IMCA rules it states you must use OEM factory style arms, the arms we sell are boxed and not OEM spec so you would be deemed illegal.
