Good news mate!You don't have to touch the bearings at all !!! Just replace the seals, highly unlikely the bearings are toast, had the very same problem and advice from local repairer but another (honest) mechanic suggested to change the seals only and it worked.Remove old seals using a large flat bladed screwdriver taking EXTREME CARE not to scratch the housing, tricky bit is to replace the seals as they have to go in SQUARE to the housing, use a large socket if available or a flat piece of steel to rest against the seal and hammer in SLOWLY AND CAREFUL, ALWAYS SQUARE ! to the housing, take your time and do it a bit at a time, the further in you go the easier it gets, make a note of the final position of the old seal before removal, do a sketch or take a photograph, also take care when reinserting the prop shaft back in the axle housing not to damage the new seal. Good luck !!!

SOURCE: I am looking to buy
Could be quite costly. Especially the rear main seal on the engine. You have to take the trans out to even get to it. I would look for something else with less problems to buy.

That sounds to me like a shaft that connects to it is out of balance. Therefore the seals are getting worn out too soon.
