Upgrading the bearings on a Mini+

Since I have to partially disassemble my Mini + to address a Y-axis failure, I've decided to upgrade the bearings.  Looking through some older post on other forums, I saw people were using the Misumi LMU8 bearings. Has anyone done a bearing upgrade on their Mini? Did you use stock parts or an upgrade?

Thanks for the help.

After re-greasing the bearings, installing a new Z rail support bracket, making sure everything is square, my mini+ has now passed calibration.

I have successfully printed a raptor claw for my daughter.

Thanks for the advice.
