Lsr had some billet carriers on clearance for 160$ on their website you should check it out can't beat that price on the whole carrier with sealed bearings

Are these bearings pressed on or how did you guys get em out??
Yes, they are pressed in. I put the carrier in a vice and pounded them out with a large punch. Be careful not to scar the inside surface of the carrier. I then cleaned up inside the carrier with some emery cloth and gently tapped the new ones in. Put the bearings in the freezer over night and they go in pretty easy.

We just did a tech article on this very subject 2 weeks ago.We used the Pivot Works bearings and did both front and rear.Should be in the magazine soon.:)It took less then 2 hours to do front and back.
