Shock bushing question

My Dobinsons shocks came with these metal bushings - am I to use these inside the rubber bushings to fit on the shock stud?

The rubber bushings fit on the stud without them, but I could squeeze the metal bushing in with some effort.

My old rough country shocks had no metal inserts.

Many thanks

Thanks - I thought it might be intended to keep the rubber bushings from being crushed.

FWIW: I tighten my castle/crown nuts up to the point where I can just get the cotter pin in. No ‘crushing’ the rubber that way.
I see - my shock studs just have regular nuts and aren’t drilled for castle nuts.
