Is there suppose to be a similar seal cover on the opposing side? All other pivot points on all sides have a bushing? ( Not sure the terminology sorry. ) except the one in picture. Reason I'm asking is I didn't drop or lose it. When I took it off it was like that. And no there is nothing stuck on linkage or shock mounts. So not sure if previous owner lost it and said eff it or what the deal was. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you.

Busting your chops just a little. My motto is, if I provide a real answer to the question, a little ball busting is still okay. Glad you caught what your previous owner missed. There is also a really good bearing cleaning/lube video for your bike on YouTube here:

I became acquainted with RTFM in the military, and it has served me well ever since for everything from trucks to bikes to cameras.

Ya that's what irritates me a lil is I too am in the military. Airforce. And I read TO's on a daily basis and illiterates parts break down are my thing. Just wasn't sure if the "A" in the figure was referring to the rubber seal and therefore b or whatever was behind it. Just wanted clarification. Thanks for the response and video. This is my first time doing a linkage. And glad I did because inside that bearing was bone dry and rusty. Took all the needles out and cleaned em up and had a fun tedious time applying grease and installing them one by one praying they didn't fall. Mission accomplished and parts on order 🙂
