If the bearings in the nose are shot, then pick up a fresh one and the coupler (sc oil too)..you'll be back to normal in no time.
It'* VERY much worth the time, money and effort. It was for me, anyway, and I'm about to do another. Another pair, actually, so I have a rebuilt full spare.
Do you have bearing/gear pullers? Do you have access to a press? You'll need those tools to do it.
