Default Bushing sleeve rusted to bolt

About a month ago as I was removing my passenger rear upper control arm, I discovered the bolt was rusted into the metal sleeve and I was not able to remove the arm. I installed these SuperPro bushings probably about 8-10 years ago, and they've been doing great other than one little squeak, which I discovered to be this bushing because the sleeve would rotate within the bushing as I was trying to remove the bolt and it would squeak.

I bought replacement arms and all new bushings and I'd like to avoid this problem in the future. I was thinking of lubing up the bolt shank either with the same lube used on the bushings or maybe using anti-seize. What do you guys think would be better, or do you believe one or both would cause a problem? I got a replacement subframe as well so I could get this car back on the road sooner. I don't want to have to go through this again.
