    Any alternatives to the rubber bearing seals for Blur lt2 upper linkage??

    was conducting my annual linkage bearing overhaul and discovered that one of the seals on my upper link was toast. Are there any rubber seal alternatives out there to the SC one's? It looks like you can only get them if you buy the 150 dollar pro pack which i'd like to avoid just for getting a seal.

    all help is most welcome.

    gave them a buzz and they squared me away. my upper link had an abnormal about of wear to the left side of the linkage. i noticed that i had put the bearings in with the blue side out on the left side when you are directed to(in the instructions) to put the black side of the bearing out

    i believe these are angular contact bearings as well and it is very likely that the wear and the mangled seal were a result of the bearings being inserted incorrectly. live and learn as well as a word to future weekend wrenches to avoid doing this.
