[DML] Should there be rubber bushings at the bottom of the springs?

I had all new springs and shocks installed about 3 years ago (about 500 miles of driving ago).  

Lately, the suspension didn't feel right when going over speed bumps and I would occasionally hear a "thump thump" sound from the passenger-side front wheel.  So, I had my local mechanic look at my springs this past weekend.  The cure was to rotate the front right spring slightly.

In passing, my local mechanic noted that there were old bushings at the top of the springs, but no bushings at the bottom of the springs.

Is it normal for the springs on a DeLorean to not have rubber bushings on the bottom?
