I would be leery about going aftermarket on this part. I'd try TSer mustang @ Findlay and see what kind of pricing he can get for you.The support bearing is making a whining noise at speed above 20 mph. It would come and go so finding what the noise was took time but I put the truck on jackstands after driving for a while and could listen under the car with the drivetrain moving. The whine / hiss sound is the center support bearing. The best price I can find on a OEM part is about 129 and the aftermarket parts prices are really all over the place. The lowest price DEA CENTER BEARING in the 30 dollar range with Tezuka being around 110. Anyone heard of Tezuka? I also found National and Timken both about 85. Any thoughts on the quality of any of the above.
Toyota does not make their own bearings, they buy from an outside manufacturer. I would not be at all afraid of aftermarket bearings, just remember to stay away from the really cheap ones.I would be leery about going aftermarket on this part.
