This happened to me as well. I called them more as a service to let them know of the issue with their stock and they were oddly defensive about it. After the sales lady accused me of lying because they had "cleared that problem out months ago" she offered to credit me like $8 or something. Odd transaction indeed

Yeah slightly inconvenient but not worth putting up a stink over the $5 the bearing costs. Didn't realize it was a common issue just wish I realized it before I had the transmission out.

Touching on this - I bought a used FM 2 clutch (gonna use my stock flywheel), what pilot bearing should I pick up?

It's hard to find parts down here right now and shipping is delayed because of the storm. Just don't want to have my car sit and be stuck.
