Parts Help - Front Sway Stabilizer Brackets

Recently installed a 27mm H&R front bar. Went in smoothly. The issue I have is I also got some 27mm PU sway bar bushings from Whiteline to pair with it.

But they don't fit the stabilizer brackets that are on the car. ID is perfect for the 27mm bar, but the OD seemed too small to fit the bracket, compared to the OEM soft rubber bushing that I nearly had to stuff in there.

I already contacted Whiteline, they're stumped.

PN for the brackets (or at least what it should be): 31306787016
I also noticed that the bracket has the same part number US vs Euro cars, and N54 vs N55, and 1er vs 3er. So it would seem that all cars with the standard 26.5mm stock bar have the same bushing and stabilizer brackets.

The bushings are Whiteline KSK104-27 and available as a service kit (also included in) their 27mm front sway bar for the 135i (and 3er etc).

Any thoughts?

Bigger muscles nothing, the bushing is too small for the bracket. What would you force, exactly? If installed, it will just rattle around in there.

Are you currently using the H&R bushings? Do they fit properly?

No, my oem bushings were beat up to the point that they fit the new bar without any fuss as a temporary measure.

No H&R bushings, that would have given me great info. Got the bar used from an e90post member, he didn't have the H&R bushings anymore, hence why I got the Whitelines in the first place.
