I think you mean Boca. Prefer Hedgehog and ZPi bearings now that I've tried them. Cleaning your bearings first before swapping them out will tell you if you will benefit from new bearings.

Your reels have spool mounted bearings. You'd need a special tool to remove the pin. In this case I'd recommend having them properly cleaned and lubricated and go from there.

Hedgehog sells the tool for around 20 dollars and it's easy to do.

Not saying a pro service might not help just a tool guy and a decent one to have around.
