Dont forget to pack your new bearings completely full of marine grease (also sold as "propshaft grease") its specifically designed to withstand moisture even submerged in salt water. It will prolong the life of the bearings significantly compare to the original grease that I suspect it's designed to NOT keep the bearings alive for much longer then your cars warranty..
