Why are the plastic upper cam chain tensioner guides so much cheaper than upper and lower together?  The upper alone seems to be around $14, but upper and lower together are $120-$150.

Upper only:

Upper and lower:

Does anyone ever just replace the upper alone?

How advisable is it to replace the J-tube when doing this service?  My chain has no play so it seems like oil is getting pumped to the chain tensioner.
