Most makes use a bush these days rather than bearings due to the low angluar movement.

well I have to say mate thats not my experience, the top mount yes, but not the bottom. Wilbers actually use what resembles a Rose Joint

Shock removed and the bearing looks ok, but, now the shocks off there`s a bit of side movement in the swing arm that wasn't there before so looks like new swing arm bearings are required.

I hear what you're saying but Wilbers don't sell bikes  :icon_wink:
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint
