Bilstein install question

I am installing new bilstein shocks in the rear. I noticed that the upper rubber shock mounts included with the shocks don't have a metal sleeve that runs through the two bushings. Should there be a sleeve running through it? The upper factory shock bushings did have a metal sleeve through the middle. The bushings included with the Bilsteins seem to fit snuggly on the shock mount so it dosen't seem there is room for a sleeve. Can someone help me out?
