Yes, that's what I did too. Didn't have proper replacements so pulled some balls from a front bearing. Now I carry spares in my pack but, wouldn't you know, not a single failure in over 3 years. "Umbrella to the beach" syndrome. Or maybe it's the new type grease.
I wish there was some way to fix the hubs with the bad races.
