If the races look OK (no pattern of rust, or dimples along the ball track) and the seals and other parts are all OK, then buy a fresh complement of balls (or a pack of 100) and reassemble it. Do this now, or soon, so you have a chance to see if it works out while you're still waiting on other stuff.
