Are you sure you have diagnosed the problems correctly?

You are saying you need one of the rear wheel bearings (do you know which side)

and the diff is whining and tha'ts caused by the pinion bearing (sure about that?)

and the centre bearing on the driveshaft is stuffed?

if you want to replace the whole rear end someone on this forum is proabably wrecking a Stagea now but you should price up the bearings first and if you're paying for the labour the total cost of the job. A whole new rear end could be the go if you get it at the right price (they are cheap as over here but freight would be a killer).

I have never heard of the centre hanger bearing flogging out but I suppose its possible. I would do all the rest first and see if there is still a problem. then again price up the bearings and labour v a second hand driveshaft.

IVE GOT THE DETAILS!!!!!!! with the diff the machanic said its a suspect sound and mite be the pinion bearing. And just what you said master jdoggy NOT CHEAP hes got a qoute for 1600 to fix the center bearing and the diff wiying, and it was the passanger rear wheel bearing he had a blow out and put those shitty 80k space saver wheel on. so if you have one of these throw it away!
