front suspension top bearing/sleeve

I'm just reassembling the front struts and having pressed the sleeve into the rubber mount  I now find I also have to press the bearing into the sleeve.
Is this normal or is the bearing supposed to rotate in the sleeve? If it is as it should be why aren't the sleeve and bearing just one piece. I.E just a bearing with a wider outer dia. then there would be no need for the sleeve?

Thanks  TH

thanks for that. I thought it was a bit daft having the sleeve pressed into the mount and then the bearing pressed into the sleeve.
It's probably the result of someone in Taiwan using a micrometer made in Chad.
I'll have a dig around and see if the old ones are still usable, if not i'll fire up the trusty myford and turn a couple of thou off the new ones.
