pinion/spider gear bearings...HALP!

G'day, eh.

My 84 5k PJ (plain jane) has been making some nasty whiney/whirry noises on
acceleration and cruise, silent on overrun. My mechanic sez pinion or spider
gear bearings, after crawling underneath with stethescope. 6 hours re/re,
plus a used diff, plus rebuilding if needed, plus, plus, plus.

Question: Am I hopelessly screwed? This could be $600-700 out the door! ARGH!
