    Nomad MK1.5 VPP Bearing Question

    So after some minor creaking, I finally got around to servicing the pivots/bearings on my 2008 Nomad. The creaking wasn't anything major... but I decided that it was probably time to have a look inside.

    I got all the pivot axl's out per Santa Cruz's directions. No hitches here, everything was a little dirty but came apart pretty easily.

    My question is, and probably a silly one, are all the bearings supposed to spin? I am assuming so, and all of them do except for the two lower ones on the rear triangle. If they aren't spinning freely, does this mean they're seized? I don't really feel like dishing out cash for the bearing removal tool, so if I need to replace them I'll probably just take it to the shop.

    Thanks for the help.
