buddy of mine called me from hawaii today and asked how hard it was to change out the output shaft bearing in the trans of a 98 blazer. what do u think a shop would charge to do it around here?? its a 5 speed 4x4 with the v6 (i think its the 4.3)

if its a manual he should take it to the dealer. I doubt a trans shop could fix it right the first try.

if it were output shaft it would squeal constantly no matter the gear. it sounds like the mainshaft pilot bearing. this bearing rides inside the input shaft and the nose of the mainshaft rides inside of it. when in any gear other then 4th or 1:1 this bearing will spin. if it goes bad it will cause noise. when in 4th or 1:1 this bearing does not move and you won't notice any noise at all.
