Just like they said... some of the advantages are:
I was trying for a while to keep the truck stock, but as I get older, I realized convenience is more important. The roller bearing always seemed to need adjustments and would fail if not performed or performed incorrectly. Then finding replacement ball bearing type bearings was getting harder and harder and more and more expensive ($50 to $90 per bearing times 4 for both sides vs. $3 to $8 per bearing if memory serves). I also noticed some of the replacements no longer had metal casings. They were using plastic! I also feel the roller bearings tend to 'push' against each other which helps to keep them in place and the ball bearings type do not.
Hope this helps!
