    I warm my muffler bearings on the satoshi grill prior to installing, they drop right on without pressing. I buy only ceramic coated Titanium Sulfate Bearings for longer life, and keeping RPMs above 4800 means the muffler bearings never slow down long enough to seize, even when overdue for replacement. I like the bilstein bearings with adjustable preload, they perform better, as the correct amount of preload is crutial for good bearing life. I also recommend regular muffler flushes to remove contaminants and wear particles, as it greatly improves muffler bearing life when compared to a muffler drain and refill, but that is better than nothing.

    Just get the non-rolling element muffler bearings P/N Nissan 20695-8H310. Made in Japan, they last a lot longer than the shitty Toyota bearings.

    Use the American made after market bearing. I had a Johnson Rod Kinibulator go in the middle of the woods. Replaced it with American made and had good luck with that.

    Be careful too much Seafoam will cause them to rust even if they are coated with monosodumglutimate.

    I fixed this by the way. PITA. All I can say is if you're doing it yourself, make sure you have a 20 ton press and torque wrench that goes to at least 200lbs.

    wait....I thought you needed a left hand socket wrench?

    that was the only thing that worked for mine, I tried the metric crescent first...
