    I'm my 3rd rear shock (the replacements have been used ones) and the bolt has always come out fine.

    May be worth removing the steering damper assembly before you check the bearings as that can "hide" an issue. Also the steering damper should be checked off the bike for smooth operation from one end...

    Why not just bypass the connector for now and hard join the wires. That way you can check if that's the problem. If you ever need to replace the pump just hardwire it again
