Prizm: the bearing races in the differential..drain plug..metal

This answer was rated:

have a 1990 geo prizm that seems to have lunched the bearing races in the differential. Noise, clunks, and upon removal of drain plug, I found chunks of what appear to be the thin metal of a bearing race. How hard is it to replace these parts?
