So a year ago I pressed the rubber bushings from my control arms, today I thought I'd install the new Poly bushings I got from GNT. Opened the box and found the new ones, but thought They should have a steel insert bushing molded in. Now I can't, remember if the old ones did or did not. have a sleeve? Please set me strait

2 if the sleeves are provided for you. The rest are re used. You will know the sleeve that is not reused by looking at it. It has flairs at both ends making it impossible to reuse. Hope this helps.

Yes, you have to re-use the metal sleeves.  I used a torch to aide in removing them from the old bushings.
