Iam in the middle of re packing shock linkage and I pulled of the swing arm both outer bearings look like they need to be replaced or repacked the two on the inside of the swingarm look good. They look like different bearings then the linkage bearings(needle) ,Can I repack them like the linkage bearings or do I have to replace them. If I have to replace them does Anyone have a good way to get them out. I used a vice and some sockets to press out a linkage bearing that I need to replace. I have not tryed to get them out in fear that I might damage something. any help would be great.
