It is a new one. I want to put bearings in to help with battery life. Am i wrong in that thought?
Nope. It's a good upgrade.
Do i have to change the carriers?
Look in your manual at the exploded view. If it lists 5x11 bushings, you're good to go and bearings will pop right in. If they are 5x8 you'll need carriers. Unless you got old stock, yours is probably the new 5x11 bushings.

If it isn't broke, keep fixing it until it is.
