there should be two 0.875" kevlar-reinforced Acetal bearings/bushes that fit into the swing arm, then a collet piece/spacer that fits into the pivot point on the frame and then the two cone sections you have to hold it all together.....working on that I would say you need the kit from betd that seems to replace the acetal bearing/bushes and uses a roller bearing

Let us know how you get on with the replacement bushes, I was lucky with mine and they had little sign of little wear so I didn't replace them, but since using it they have started to show it ,so they will need doing soon
