Is that by Canadian standards or Euro standards?

I warm my muffler bearings on the satoshi grill prior to installing, they drop right on without pressing. I buy only ceramic coated Titanium Sulfate Bearings for longer life, and keeping RPMs above 4800 means the muffler bearings never slow down long enough to seize, even when overdue for replacement. I like the bilstein bearings with adjustable preload, they perform better, as the correct amount of preload is crutial for good bearing life. I also recommend regular muffler flushes to remove contaminants and wear particles, as it greatly improves muffler bearing life when compared to a muffler drain and refill, but that is better than nothing.

Are you sure it's the bearing? Muffler bearings and transverse oil resonators sound very similar when they go bad. 30,000 sounds a bit early for a muffler bearing to go south (unless you've added a torsional fuel-line lift kit, of course).
I'd keep looking, just to make sure. Hell, even check around the injector pan rotary lockout nut. That damn things makes weird sounds ALL the time!
WIN!

Just get the non-rolling element muffler bearings P/N Nissan 20695-8H310. Made in Japan, they last a lot longer than the shitty Toyota bearings.

Use the American made after market bearing. I had a Johnson Rod Kinibulator go in the middle of the woods. Replaced it with American made and had good luck with that.

Be careful too much Seafoam will cause them to rust even if they are coated with monosodumglutimate.

Aftermarket is the best way to go.

This is the best one I've found so far, and it is at a affordable price!

I fixed this by the way. PITA. All I can say is if you're doing it yourself, make sure you have a 20 ton press and torque wrench that goes to at least 200lbs.
