I need to replace them. slight wobble. Besides the actual bearings, what else should I replace, if anything? clicky
you can just tell me the numbers if you're feeling lazy haha :thumbsup:

oh yeah, any special tools to remove the old bearings and put in the new one?

get a seal and bearing kit and you should be fine. what i have used to get bearing out in a similar situation is a hydrualic press. not sure if you need or should use one for this.

Pivot Works makes one.

No special tools. Remove the old bearings with a hammer and punch, try to get them out as evenly as possible. Put the new ones in the freezer for a few hours and install them with a socket that is the same size as the outer race of the bearing and hammer.

Make sure to pack the bearings with grease before you install them. Bel-Ray waterproof grease is good stuff.
