You need the tools and knowledge to do it, if you don't, get someone who does. If you stuff it, it will cost you more than to get somebody to do it.

Looks like I'll leave it to someone who does this stuff for a living...
Any ideas on how much it is likely to cost?

Sounds reasonable to me Daggy. I vaguely recall someone saying about $120.
The "whoosha whoosha" sound (which is why I'm thinking bearings) could also be the tailshaft bearing or not? Can't be the tyres or balance as I've only just had that checked out.

Mate same boat as me... i had that whoosha whoosha lol sound as u call it... i had all my suspension checked and new tyres put on 2 days b4 replacing bearings... so good chance it would be a bearing....
