Listen back to the rehearsal recording and start making mental notes of what you need to change in order to sound better.
When you do go into the studio, the best thing you can do is go in, mic up, and everyone play just like you are in the living room. The purpose of a recording is to be an accurate representation of what the band can do. Whether or not the guitarist and bassist and others keep their performance tracks, the smart thing is to capture the drums. I would not use a click if you are not accustomed to one. A great energy can be ruined by the presence of a click track.
Unless you are planning to do a lot of editing and looping, don't use a click. Go record your BAND, not create an expensive piece of drama that takes 3 years to complete, and by the time it's released the band has been long broken up. Get in, capture, get out. Recording a disc is often the Kiss of death for bands so make sure you just roll through it as efficiently as possible.

Instead, practice your parts until you know them forward and backward. When your band gets together to rehearse, only play the songs you're going to track. The reason is, the more comfortable with the material you are the easier it is to go on auto-pilot.
