I have this same exact washer, and the noise of the bearings could be heard from the basement to the second floor. The noise gets louder and louder as the bearing fail. The ball bearings are no longer round but misshapen as they rust and pit. The drum will have more play since the bearings are no longer true but they wobble as they turn. Unless you see that they are physically broken, the shocks and springs are probally ok. So replacing them won't solve your vibration or noise problem. The bearings need to be replaced.
Frigidaire wanted $250 + shipping for the rear drum with the bearings. My machine was 9 year old and the grease from the failed seal was dripping onto my clothes leaving brown stains when I decided to have it fixed. I did not want to spend $250 on parts to fix a 9 year old washer. But instead, after tearing the washer appart and seperating the wash drum into the two parts I just replaced the two bearings and seal. I pounded out the bearings from the rear tub and pressed in new ones. It took about 6 hours and less than $70 to fix. It's almost two years since I replaced the bearings and the machine is quiet enough that during a spin cycle you can have an normal conversation.
If you have some mechanical ability and a friend that willing to help you you can do it too. I got my bearings and seal from E.B. Atmus Co. The ones you need are 6307-2RS, 6306-2RS and seal number is 15939-CR. I learned how to do it by reading this blog. http://www.applianceguru.com/forum2/834.html
Hope this helps you.
