They don't have a bearing as in a ball bearing, but a bushing. Does it have enough oil in it????

that kit will fix any leaks.
u say it squeaks now after fixing the water pump. ive had that problem before but was caused by getting grease/dirt on the belt. gave it all a good hit with degreaser and pressure cleaned and it stopped squealing.
