Cleaning
Take out of Car, Take some Motor cleaner and Blast it w/ it. Anothing you can do is put in Aceton in a cup and shake around. let it dry and put 1 drop of oil of your choice.

New bearing:

SPC Racing;

For soaking, Paint Thinner or Mineral Spirits cut through the dirt and grease better than anything else I've tried.
