    Bushings and Bearings

    Hi all:
    I recently replaced the upper bushing on my X-Fusion shock. It also has a bearing as well. I noticed that the bearing was shot so my LBS replaced it but removed the bushing and placed a sealed bearing in it's place. So there is NO bushing and just a bearing. Is this potentially going to cause problems with wear in the eyelet?

    Thanks.

    Is it one of the Enduro needle bearing eyelet kits? I have a set on one bike and it has been great for months including a week at Whistler.
