Well done for getting the pics. Looks a very worthwhile repair/ upgrade. So the original one there has an inner metal sleeve?

Have you tested the car now the work is done?

Yes the metalasitic bush is completely replaced by the poly bush ..... Drives very nice steering is sharper and feels tighter

No not that I've experienced... I bout those spacers off eBay as well for the XJrs but there's no room for them ... So I would say it's a better fitting bush than the original

Ok good. Did you use a chisel to cut off the old metal bush?
