Whelp, I received and installed the needle bearing and re-used the deep-groove bearing. Today's test drive has me 95% certain that the repair has been successful. =D
The rear toe is out due to a recent bushing replacement, after an alignment I will be able to further diagnose the state of the suspension. ;) Lane changes now happen when I ask for them as opposed to having to guess about when to counter-steer after crossing the line so I think I'm good here!
