In my opinion, which is often warped, isn't one of the failure mechanisms
the separation of the bearing from the housing creating a rattling and
thunking. The bearing is only pressed into the housing. This has happened to
my UrQ countless times with the blue correct bearings. When I unpacked all
the spares that came with my '85 UrQ mega restoration project (someday I'll
divulge all the gory details to the list) I found four new blue bearings. I
used them, but lately I'm wondering if I shouldnt go with the alloy ones
listed on Ebay in the UK quite a lot. By the way, I've also used the much
cheaper Blau strut bearings in the past on my '83. They are similar in
rubber hardness to the blue ones.Thoughts?
