It's a good idea to replace both bearings at the same time. When one bearing is failing the odds are good the other bearing will also start failing.

I am going to replace the left side bearing tomorrow. If that fails to get rid of the noise, any suggestions from there? Cheers guys. This forum is amazing.

Too bad the OP abandoned the thread.
one failed, i changed it. a month later i almost did the wrong one. i actually realized my mistake when i went to take it apart and noticed i was about to replace the same side again.

Thanks Rob, I was hoping it would be the solution for my roaring PT. I just put it back together with new bearings on both sides and the fix worked for me too!

I'll finish up my photo journal of this journey in my other thread.
