Urathane Rear Subframe Mount Bushings Help!

So I just bought some new urethane rear subframe mount bushings from AKG and they look great. I have one question though. The dowel that goes through the center for the bold is about a quarter inch longer than the bushing itself. It seems to me that this would lead to the mount sliding up and down when the car takes off. I have flashbacks of when I first got my car and the passenger subframe bushing separated from the dowel and the car made a heavy clunk-cu-clunk when accelerating from a stop. Trying to figure it out before I install it to avoid voiding a return. Anybody use these or ones like them? Problems? Thanks in advance fella's! Ill try to include a picture.

The deal is the two bushings does not reach each other when they are slided into the mount. They stop against the rib so the bushing/ tube is about then 1/16 too short, just enough to compress them against the mount.

Awesome. Thanks bro I owe you one. Wonder why more people dont use these? There cheaper than stock replacements and you shouldnt ever have to replace them again. We'll see how they ride. Thanks again for your time! I was a little nervous...
