Often times it is the lower shock mount bearing to go first.

Then the check should be made for the other bearings in the linkage.

Some brand new bikes have bearings go bad in the first ride or two from lack of grease leaving the factory. And many used bikes just plain get neglected. Bearings turn to dust and sometimes linkages get ovalized.
