I bought a new t-rex 500 plastic tail blade assembly.
Can anyone tell me if the thrust bearings come prelubed?
or am i going to have it apart.

I would be more concerned with the loctite on the screws. Take it apart to check that and while your at it re-lube the bearings. FWIW I never bothered lubing them, only the blade grip thrust bearings.

Life is tough, it's tougher if you're stupid

You can never rely on Align or anyone else for that matter to do the right thing.

Always tear it down and check it yourself then you'll know.

The tail grips on mine had locktite on the screws (a lot, I actually had to heat one of them to get it off), but no lubrication for the thrust bearings. Good thing I checked too....
