Since suspension bearings do not actually rotate completely and deal with side loads...go with specific suspension bearings. Chromium bearings are actually harder than Stainless Steel and thus more durable. The Enduro Max bearings are ideal for this application.keen said:My Trek's suspension uses 608 2RS bearings. Looked on ebay and they sell ones w/ chrome steel balls or Stainless steel - which to get ? Thanks.
For under $10 shipped I can get two bearings (I only need 2). I'd probably spend more on gas and travel time if the local bearing house could even beat that price.mtnbikej said:Take one down to your local bearing supplier and buy them there, for a fraction of the cost.
