Can Crane Gold roller rockers be rebuilt?

Got a set with worn trunion bearings. Can the bearings be easily obtained and if so, is it worth it? ie. what are the bearings going to cost, keeping in mind that I would need 24 bearings as 4 rockers were replaced not that long ago. I can't seem to find any replacement parts on cranes website (sucks anyway) or anywhere else.

Crane did offer to rebuild the gold rockers some years ago. I recall that it cost about half as much as a new set at the time when a new set cost 450.

take the bearings to an industrial supply house such as Motion industries they can get the bearings. Rather cheap to I have rebuilt a set this way pretty simple.

If their worn enough to need new bearings I would personally be worried about metal fatigue of the aluminum.
