Either way, considering what a new engine costs and the fact that I am out of warranty, replacing the bearings may be a small price to pay for some piece of mind.
The diagnosis would have to be very certain for me to tear apart a seemingly healthy engine. Oil analysis may give you this data. How about the old standard of low oil pressure? That worked for many years.
