Default AP2 Energy Sus Rear Upper Control Arm Bushing Concern

My concern is there seems to be a gap on the inner part of the bushing when installed. It doesn't make sense to me that the AP1 bushings come with an inner and outer but yet the AP 2 rear bushings only have 1 part to the bushing. See the instructions below. I may just go with a different brand for the rear control arms later to alleviate my concerns. Does anyone have experience installing these bushing on an AP2? I havent seen anyone post about this before, I've seen the concerns about the front uppers but those have been fixed. Are the rears supposed to have an inner and outer as well like the front does? I'm going to email energy suspension as well.

Thank you.

I am not certain with Energy Suspension in regards to the design. I was under the impression that theirs included a 3 piece design, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I would suggest getting PowerFlex or another 3 piece clamshell design. The 2 piece like those (single bushing and sleeve) tend to distort after time and also allow for grease to get out and dirt to get in. I previously had Prothane which used a similar design and I replaced the uppers with PowerFlex.
