Default NP205 front output bearings?

The front yoke on my NP205 is not tight. It has probably 1/8" radial play in it - is this just a set of worn bearings? I haven't pulled the front of one of these apart, but I understand theres a front bearing and a rear "pilot" bearing. Would both need to be replaced?

Usually it's the front bearing that supports the yolk that goes first. Mine was wasted and all the others were fine. Easy fix.

I ordered a complete bearing set from ORD because I was rebuilding it and upgrading parts at the same time.

Jer if you're looking for a kit or anything D&E around 10 mile and John R or so might have it, or, I bought mine in pontiac at Gordon Automotive. The sell all sorts of trans parts, and some t-case parts. $125 for the entire rebuild kit. Just don't use the figure 8 gasket from it, it will be too thin and you'll damage your adaptor. Luckily I measured and caught it. They also had the correct thick gasket for $7 too though. If you just want one bearing take it out and read the numbers, and go to a bearing place, it'll be dirt cheap.
