You are correct, I would leave the wear sleeve on there and get a new stemco seal and put that on. If you take the wear sleeve off, according to stemco, you need a special tool to put the new one on. But Kevin in the below video made his own driver, but if its in good shape i would just use the old one.
Here are the directions from stemco.
If you go to 38.50 in the video, Kevin, a member here, replaced all his seals.
