Default Bushing on upper suspension arm....

Hi everyone!, I have the bushing of upper suspension arm (front) in my truck D250 1990 damaged, I already bought the bushing in autozone (duralast brand) but when I tried to instal it, both of them ( both upper) didn't fit into the bolt, I mean, it fit under upper suspension arm however, bolt can not be installed (do not enter into bushing) do you have any idea, probably autozone gave me the bushing for D150, I don't know, is it the same? where can I get them? do you know which is the internal diameter for this bushing?
Thanks in advance

UCA: Upper control arm.

If the bolt doesn't fit the bushing, likely you have the wrong bushings. Take the bolt with you to the parts store, when you return the bushing, and see if they have the correct flavor.

i am pretty sure all the trucks have the same size UCA bushing/bolts. there is no real weight put on it so there is likely no reason to have multiple different sizes. they can be a pain to get aligned in the hole. i would recommend using a screwdriver or maybe a punch. i think i remember fighting with it last year when i did the 1 on my truck.

I changed the bushing to Moog brand, and fit perfectly, thanks to everyone for your comments
