    I had mine done last month. A local garage was recommended by a member on here and he saved me a fortune.
    I paid £45 for bearings and grease bolts (ebay) then the garage charged just £226 for fitting.

    The top bearing is the needle bearinged point. The bottom/lower ones are ball bearing and very rarely fail (told by my mechanic).
