Swing Arm Bearing Kit

Found THIS KIT on flea bay.

Any thoughts on whether these would make an acceptable set of replacements/spares?

Re: Swing Arm Bearing Kit

Are we talking pivot pin bearing? I don't see where the o-ring and seal go.

Has anybody had a swingarm bearing fail?
If I was replacing the pivot pin bearings, I would be using the
bronze bushings from Rubber Chicken Racing.
