    I dont have the numbers but for some reason the regular Enduro bearings lasts longer than the Max for me. They have made less noise too.

    I completely dissagree with you. The Enduro bearings have no ball cages and have MAXimum number of balls. They are made as pivot bearings. Bearings like the SKF which have ball cages are made for high speed rotation and not back and forth pivoting loads. And yes... I have used a set of SKF.

    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    looks like the new kits are using the enduro 7001, could be worth a shot.

    it's the enduro quality that sucks and SKF has many options including much better seals.

    Thanks everybody for your help. I got a pretty good run out of the Enduro bearings for East Coast weather...funny, the Socom bearings lasted a good while longer than my 5.5's did.
