I wonder if you installed them the correct way?
You should be able to get the roll pins back in the factory holes.
Cany you flip the bushings 180º and they fit properly?

I had plenty of room with my Energy Suspension bushings for the roll pins. I wonder if you could have intalled them backwards or something, or maybe your lower control arms aren't pulled all the way ahead. The poly t-bar bushings are a bear to install! I had to grease them up then push a large socket in them then try to get them on the bars. Not a lot of fun.

The short side of the bushing should be toward the front of the vehicle, this would give less cushion when braking as the control arm would be forced rearward and the alignment angles change very little with suspension movement.

The short brake shoe should always go toward the front of the vehicle as this is part of the self energization upon application.
