Rear Suspension Rebuild: Bearings also?

Hello all:

Following up the rebuild of my front suspension I am now turning my borderline talents to the rear suspension.

I plan on replacing the spring plate bushings with Neatrix, upgrading the t-bars, and performing a clean and grease of the axles. I will pull the spring plates, etc. for repainting. Like the front suspension, I do not want to remove the caliper and force a rebleed (pads, calipers, rotors all new at this time).

I have no plans on replacing the banana arm bushings or the axle bearings. Is this wise? I understand the "while you're in there" model but am antsy to get this baby back on the road.

If I decide to tackle the banana arm bushings and axle bearing at a later date will I need to realign/corner balance?

Many thanks guys!
John
