    I'm not sure what I was thinking when I started this thread, to tell you the truth. I guess it's not a good idea to open with a one-sentence factual statement. Live and learn.

    Cool! Is that where the "Grade 25" designation comes from? Are Grade 300 balls within 0.0003 of spec?

    For what it's worth, I have a front and rear set just like these except that they're black. They obviously have some miles on them and are slightly faded but are otherwise in good shape. I'll never...

    Left-over ball bearings?

    I've read that ball bearings of a given size and type shouldn't be mixed from one batch to another--the theory being that sub-microscopic differences in manufacturing tolerances potentially mean that...
