    Some marina's (mine being one of them) didn't have the top location plate. See diagram below. The lowering blocks supplied have a 3° taper to replace the steel wedges

    I think the plates are used to wrap the rubber to make it stiffer. In what way would they need cutting to fit?

    I have the same superflex bushes and yes they are longer than the original so I would probably trim them to be the same length as the plates as the overhanging rubber at each end will provide no benefit. I suspect that they are actually universal and can be used in several applications as they look similar to Mk1 Cortina bushes.
