I removed my original Chevrolet body bushings this weekend and there was no sleeve. Only a bolt, a big washer, and the 2 piece rubber bushing. My car is a Texas car so I know the sleeve didn't rust away.
Reviving an old thread here. I have the same issue. I can't rule out the fact that the previous owner discarded the sleeves, but they're definately gone on my 68. I've got Energy Suspension bushings ready to install but I'm going to have to replace the hardware. I've been trying to get the big washers here locally and I'm being told by the fastner companies that I'll have to make my own.
I'd like to make my own sleeves, but I have no idea what they look like. Does anyone have pictures and or measurements? I'm envisioning turning out some stepped metal disks with a sleeve in between. I'm just not sure how long the sleve should be or the diameter.
