Could someone answer fast? Is there bearing at the upper mounting of the rear shock. Stupid question because mine is totally jammed and cant get it opened with my tools. My guess is that there is, but it is just so jammed. Want to be sure because im going right now to by all bearings to the rear part of the bike. Almost all bearings were dry, rusty and jammed. This is why i usually go bike through after i buy it....

it is not a roll, needle or ball bearing. It is simple bushing bearing with rubber damping that usually slides out with push of finger. At least on my DR.

Just a sec, perhaps we are talking of different parts? Are you talking about bearing in lower "eye" of shock absorber itself or bushing that go inside that bearing? It is bearing, but it fixed in the shock absorber "eye" by spring ring. Upper comes with shock, fixed there by rubber spacer

Snocross, the bolt must be rusted to shock bush, the bush will be a tight fit between the frame as it is not ment to turn with shock but pivot using the flex of the rubber just looked at mine and thats the theory.

Parts diagram shows no bearing or bushing. Just a bolt that goes through the shock eye.

Can't recall for sure but I think inner bushing rotates, but it is as I said - no bearing, just bushing. And it rotates but as far as I remember not easy at all.
All thing is indeed jammed into shock eye and sitting solid in there - this is how it must be actually, but of course shock should move. Even if you disasemble it you will have to break it to get it apart. And there is no replacement part available.

Snocross I have same problem ..... impatience. This can and will make things MORE expensive . The one pictured does not move/turn as this is a captive anchor for the shock (top), grease and bolt on .The give is in the rubber mount.
The bottom is bolted to the mmmm, looks to be a little boat. All this is movable and has needle bearings. SO the bottom part of shock has a small ball like sleeve ( can move around like a binicle (SHIPS COMPASS) ) also rubber mounted with a small spacer either side. Grease all this and bolt up. The bearings are in the wish bone and bottom frame mount. The shock doesn`t move really or so little movement it will not be noticable.
