I didn't seem to have these on disassembly. Are they necessary?

ca, us
Only to keep them from falling out during assembly. You can wood wedges or rubber tube down the tunnel instead.

I just paste them with a small dab of grease or assembly lube which easily washes away. Always worked well for me and easy is a good thing.
