Ya, definitely sounds like support. I went with the Vertex Automotive solution found on Amazon. It was very easy. The only thing I'm glad I had was an extra pair of hands and an angle grinder to cut the original bearing support off. Once that was off, we just took the angle grinder to the bearing and gently angled it properly to spin the bearing but also remove the rubber that is adhered to the bearing. Also a razer blade will work nicely, but will take a lot longer.
Everything is running smooth in my Treg! Hope you can find a quick and permanent fix to your problem.
