Changing diff side bearings is a big undertaking because it involves shim
adjustments of the pinion and ring gear interface.  You should read the
Bentley procedure before deciding if you want to tackle it.  Alternatives
are of course used, rebuilt, or having yours rebuilt.  German Transaxle in
Bend, OR. is one of the better rebuilders.  Try Dave at Dads AW for used,
