Should Their Be Metal Sleeves for Control Arm Bushings on My '99 Suburban?

Volume 2 Issue 3 - 6.2/6.5 Issues and Answers

I have a ‘99 2500 Suburban, when I replaced the lower control arm bushings the replacement bushings had a metal sleeve, however the originals had no metal sleeves. I took the control arms to the dealership and even their head suspension mechanic had no answers.  I ended up buying new complete lower control arms and they also had sleeveless bushings.  Can anyone tell me why everywhere, including the Chevy dealership, only sold sleeved bushings.  I was told I left the bushing sleeves in the control arms.  However the old ones don’t have any and the new replacements didn’t have any.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
