Skyjacker rear spring question?

I've got a pair of Skyjacker DR60S rear lift springs for my W250.
I think they may have sent the wrong springs as the bushings in them are 5/8" and they need to be 3/4".
The sticker was scuffed in shipping so I couldn't read any part numbers off them.
I'd read Skyjacker aren't good with bushing sizes and I expected my front springs to come with none fitted and bought some suitable ones for them but hadn't read anything about the rears.
If they are the correct spring and they put the wrong bushing in then that's fine and I'll just remove them and fit some 3/4" ones but don't want to do that if they're wrong.
The only spec I can find listed online for this spring is 2.5" wide which is correct, know body states bushing size.

I've emailed their tech support but thought I'd ask on here while I wait for a reply.

bushing width will be 3in wide. kinda pricey but jungle on ramchargercentral has them in kit form with greasable bolts if you dont want to piece together yourself.

Any idea how to get a hold of him without making an account on ramcharger? I need the front bushings from him

Bushings are just under 3", 73mm on the new springs just as they are on my old springs.
Do you have experience with getting skyjacker springs with 5/8's bushings in? I got a set of them from jungle for the front.

I wanted to do the same thing, in the end I just made an account and messaged him, took 2 minutes. $24 per side + shipping
I have the email address he has for his paypal account, you could try emailing him through that [email protected]
