Looking at bearings today, anything to look for on the bearings or races that would make me need to buy new ones? I assume grooves of any kind, anything else? Also you don't fill the void between the inner and outer bearings with grease right?

Well we took everything off. On the right side everything looked fine so we just repacked and reinstalled. On the right side, one of the bearings had a small knick in it and was slightly bent so we replaced both bearings on that side and the back seal. All the races looked fine to us so we left. We used Lucas Red 'N' Tacky #2. The little zerk thing on the outside looked pretty homemade, you would have to pump a lot of grease into the cap to get it to do anything.

Is there any issues to having one set of bearings replaced and not the other?
