Worth it to me in the circumstance that I needed to get it done before
driving to Colorado for the winter starting Saturday.  I'm expecting to go
through the whole suspension next summer, so I'll do those other services
then.  This bearing had gone from making a little noise to making a slight
vibration in the steering wheel.  I've had too many demands on my time the
last three months to address this the way I originally wanted to.
