No, but most do box it. It's not a load bearing bar, so there isn't alot of stress on it. But it's up to the person. I've boxed them in on most of my installs per the customers request. Hope this helps

don't they have to fit into a bracket that is just wider than the bar itself?

that makes more sense. The bushing just fits into the bracket, any "plating" around this bushing, and it won't fit. If you wanted to get a little crazy, you could weld steal on the inside walls of the trailing arm, up to the bushing, than cap it for looks., I think they're capped so they don't flex when 3 wheel, not necessarily for weight bearing.

not hatin westside but if you cut the peices for the holes and make and weld the patterns to weld on the inside of the bar you should be ok right? :dunno:
