Hello, I’m restoring a 1970, with the F-41 suspension option. I have a question about the upper bushings used on the support brackets (pictured). I have found the bushings for the sway bar itself, but can’t find the upper bushing (pictured). The original part number appears to be 3859145. Any info or help would be greatly appreciated!

I had the same problem finding those bushings for my 73Z. Had to go aftermarket but don't remember who.
As Mitch_Z said, there should be a metal sleeve.
Here's a little info on the rear sway bar bushings in general, including some from Tommy. I used his and they were perfect.
