Yep. The sleeves are crap. Clean up a used original set as best you can and go with that. I have got years out of used sets that I thought were worn out.

You may have to modify them and trim them down to fit better as they are slightly different than the originals. Add some grease to the inside of the sleeves. That will help the lower forks travel up and down.
