Andy what bearings are you referring to? The crank bearings aren't something that get checked regularly. Dathan are you sure its the engine vibrating and not something like brakes, wheel bearings, u-joints, and the list goes on.

check the motor mounts also. You may want to just run through the motor compartment and make sure all the bolts are tight. Check rotating parts first... ie. Fan, belt pulleys... then check for a miss fire at high RPM. Also, a vibration in the engine can have a cause as far away as a rear bearing, u-joint, unbalanced tire etc.,
