LOL, that was the exact discussion I had with Bobby, Wswartzel, Flattbutt, my other buddy and myself. In the end, Bill won out (and technically, as such, the parts fiche!) -- }---{ -- is how it ended up. The PDF shows 90-degrees, maybe, but it's sort of an isometric drawing anyways.

The inner bearings were rusted to hell ... the one one the right side was frozen to the Ti fixed-pivot pin ... left one was loose. Decided it was a good idea to just replace both sides and be done with it for another 30k.

Sucks paying $35 a bearing for something that small. I'll have to hit up the place we have locally next time -- in advance, of course.

Firmed everything up and now it doesn't feel like the rear end is coming around anymore. Sweet fix!
