I need to replace the two guide bearings on the middle sliding door bracket. Has anyone located a place (or know what size bearings) that can supply me with just the bearings?

can you free the OG ones? usually an industrial supply house can match them up as long as they can measure the id and od, some require an account in order to do business with them id check locally myself you never know they might be the last ones in the tray and they throw them at you for free so they dont have to pay the taxes on the surplus, just a thought, ive gotten lucky like that b4

ones missing, and the other probably isn't coming off in one piece.

I planned on just measuring them and digging around online, but I figured if someone already knew something that worked, it would say me the dirty work.

I have not verified this but I was told the bearings for the sliding door are the same they use on skateboards. So find a skate board shop and compare and if so they are a heck of a lot cheaper.
