Drive line bearing
How do you know if a driveline bearing is going bad? On a polaris virage I give them a shot of lube every time I ride.

Usually i notice a copper colored metal flake in the excess grease that oozes out. (the bushing is wearing out)
Or you might be getting water inside the hull.

If you can flex the bearing carrier up and down or left-right and it moves without moving the drive shaft then the bushing to driveshaft clearance is probably getting excessive.
The two internal brass bushings keep the carrier aligned to the driveshaft. The seals just ride on the shaft and are not designed to keep the shaft in place.
