Default Rear Lower Arm Front Bushing - Spherical OD

For those who have replaced their Rear Lower Arm (front facing) suspension bushing with a spherical bushing, do you know the OD of the bushing sleeve that needs to be removed? I ran into a dilemma while trying to remove the bushing since I see the outer sleeve (OD 54.85mm) and I also see a metal center sleeve (OD 43.30mm). My instinct tells me I need to remove the outer sleeve. Is that correct?

The bearing from the Megan Racing kit I received has an OD of 42.10mm. The other bushings match to the other corresponding bushings (shock mount bushing and rear facing bushing on the rear LCA). I am trying to determine if I may have received the wrong bushings in the kit or if this is an installation thing. Seeing if anyone is in the know before I call Megan on Monday.

I was able to solve this using this thread: https://www.s2ki.com/forums/s2000-under-hood-22/removing-rear-lca-bushings-1028920/

It was buried, but i was fortunate have been able to find it. The bushing is double lipped, both sides, so you have to chisel the lip up and saw it off in order for you to press it out. Was a total PITA, but all's well now.
