The MB SLS struts rarely leak. There's no benefit to replace them if they don't. I have 292K on mine and recently hauled a 1K Lb load 60 miles without a second thought.

The reason for the bushing sleeves and hardware is because MB used the same camber strut on many models and years. The later ones have a larger bolt hole. The sleeve allows the smaller hardware to work without any other mods.
