    Take it to a tail shaft joint and they will do it for you.

    Just putting in another tailshaft means you're putting in another 2nd hand center bearing.

    Replacing them is a surprisingly smart option to ensure longevity.

    As said before, take it to a tailshaft / driveshaft place. The Toyota ones are bastards to replace if memory serves.
    You can have any brew you want... as long as it's a Datsun / Corolla / What is that?
