Pete :

The bearing/support itself can generally cost less then $100 and about 1 to 2 hours labor max to have replaced.

Pete :

This is best replaced by a shop or dealer or a drive line repair facility to make sure the repair is done correctly and the bearing is installed correctly as well.

Pete :

It requires removing the drive line and using a press in most cases or an air hammer to remove and install the new bearing/support.

You did not tell me if this could be the cause of the vibration that I explained earlier.
Expert:  Pete replied 5 years ago.
I apologize.

Yes as the drive line will move up and down and side to side rapidly more then it should when driving the vehicle.

This will definitely cause this type of vibration here.
