    New bearings or not Specialized Epic Comp 29er-the main rear suspension pivot squeak

    I have a 2013 Specialized Epic Comp 29er full suspension. I have about 3,500 miles on hit mostly on trail. Lately the main pivot in the rear suspension is starting to squeak. Do I need a new bearing kit or is it just due for standard maintenance? I will have it done at the LBS, but I thought I could save some money on the parts if I need to go down this path.

    Any advice would be appreciated.
