rear shock

Recommended Posts

does the swivel bushings on the top and bottom rear shock mounts need to have bearing grease in them? I took mine apart they were dry no grease, the bottom one was seized so i pressed it out and put in a new one, the top one was like new...........

do i put grease in and around them or leave them dry?

When I had my 04 yz250 and put new rear shock bearings in top and bottom I did not grease the outer part just the inner, the part that has the pins in it. Thats all you need to put the grease in< the inner part.

there are no pins in this swivel type bushing.....its like an outer race with a swivel connected to the race......

this is what it looks like ..#6 in the attached picture is the actually swivel bearing however its not a very good representation...
