These are caged bearings designed for continuous rotation. They won't last well in a suspension pivot. You want full complement bearings, not lawnmower bearings.

They are also being sold as "tight tolerance" bearings which concerns me. Because these suspension bearings are pressed into the suspension links the outer race contracts slightly. If you start with a bearing with not enough internal clearance it will bind and wear itself out faster.
