injector sleeve replacement?

Can any body tell me what I should look for when deciding if the injector sleeves need to be replaced? Or is it a good idea just to replace them when ever the injectors are replaced.

I'm about to change out my injectors, they are sitting on my bench.

I'd be interested in knowing the answer to this question as well.

Generally, they shouldn't need to be replaced unless they are cracked or scored. Cheers!

they dont fail very often. high mileage trucks that havent ran the coolant additive are the usual suspects. when i worked for the dealership i only replaced 1 set, the truck had over 350k and the coolant had never been changed accordint to the owner

Well mine look good so I won't replace at this time. What is the coolant additive you mentioned.
Thanks for your help

its an additive that is supposed to eliminate electrolysis and cavitation. available at your dealer for a few bucks. reccomended to be added every 50k. there should be info about it in your owners manual.

Fleetguard DCA60L Supplemental Coolant Additive at DieselManor
Also good to have some test strips in your toolbox. I check my SCA levels every oil change, and add as needed. Levels should read between 1.5 and 3
Here's a pretty good read on cavitation: Cavitation Article
