Performance Cycling said they would do it for $20 an axle so it is worth it to me to have it done right the first time. Thanks for the suggestion however.....
Park has already typed all the stuff out that you need and how to do it. The rear hub bearings should be 1/4" and the front 3/16". If you have to replace cones, you'll need to go the your LBS. Shimano has done some hinky things in the past and not all cones for their hubs are the same.
