Yes, this sliding bushing on the Curt Q20 # C16530 that you're referring to is a removable bushing (which is why it slides) and is completely normal. I've attached the section in the instructions where it refers to this bushing. Figure 10 (shown in the attached picture) says in regards to the placement of the bearing- Ensure that the machined bearing retainer and the removable bearing retainer are against lower bearing assembly. Both sit inboard of mid-section bearing shaft cradles during assembly.
