I've got the same problem, but on the pass side. What happened is the inner needle bearing assembly failed (not the sealed wheel bearings). It's where the outer shaft is supported on the inside of the hub assembly.
Now, you've got a damaged outer shaft (inner's still probably good), and possible damage to the hub assembly.
My advice: buy a used hub assembly from a wrecking yard (inspect the needle bearing), and sweet talk them into selling you just the outer shaft (probably won't, inner's don't sell and here in PDX they want $125 - $200). I don't remember what I paid for the hub assembly, but doing it this way will save you time and money (unless you can press your own bearings)
Don't forget new seals, very important for the operation of auto hubs.
mods thus far:
1704 tuner gizmo, BHAF, 4" DP to 5" stack, FPR w.109 shim, disconnected wastegate, plethora of gauges, 10k mod w/ 20k resistor (removed after it jacked up my connector), 17*HPOP (not really), hybrid sticks (I wish), some kinda badass turbo (another lie), mega body damage (that's gospel).
