Matthew, That is only a hollow cavity and being as the holes are Not On the bottoms they collect some water. Air them out, squirt some knocker loose in & put a blob of RTV over the holes.
The potentially rusty portion of the bolt must pass thru the bearing sleeve in the center rocker. The needle bearings ride on the outside of the sleeve, not the bolt itself.
ps, I personally do Not fill those 2 cavities full of grease when reassembling. I only grease the needle bearings, sleeves, seals & bolts. And plug those 2 stupid holes to keep any water from getting in on the bolt.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
