So I bought the all balls axle bearings and I believe the carrier I have has dual bearings on each side.

Any tricks to get these bearings out as well?? Hammering from one side didn’t seem to make them budge.

A hydraulic press makes it easy.
Any machine shop will have one.
The new bearings need pressed in too(or pulled in with a big washer and threaded rod), because hammering them in will damage them.

I pulled out two bearings for each side, would I order another set of the all balls bearings set to keep the same setup. Or was I suppose to order two?

Standard has 2 bearings
Double roller has 4, for more support and durability.
Your choice on using 2 or 4, and if you want 4, then yes, just order another pair like you already have, as all 4 bearings are the same.

Thanks for the info. Went ahead and ordered another set of the all balls, have a friend that had a press so that’ll be the easy part.

Having a little trouble finding the right tool to press these in the right way. Usually go with the socket wrenches method and tap in but not having any luck finding something the size of the outer ring of the bearing.
