So far I have find this bearing from 4 places

BavAuto PN# 26 12 1 226 723 $49.95

Pelican Parts PN# BW-26-12-1-226-723

Timken PN# 106CC Can be bought in Auto Zone for $19.99

BCA Bearing PN# 106CC Can be bought in Advance auto parts for $25.48

So is there any big difference between those parts

sp0rky is an unknown quantity at this point
I just recently did the center baering job on my e34. It then failed within 500 miles. Totally.

It's cheap - so replace the tranny mounts.

It my case, my tranny mounts had SHRUNK from the heat of the cat (they are directly above the catalytic conv) and changed the angle of the dshaft which in-turn tore the center bearing up rapidly.

It was something like 25.00 for both tranny mounts. It's good to do. Also - remember to pre-load it - or you will still have the drivetrain shutter.

good luck.

www.BMAAutoParts.com has them, too.
