It's easier to replace the whole unit, and you should get a lifetime warranty at most auto parts stores on a rebuilt alternator. I've done bearings, etc., in alternators and it's hardly worth the time, plus if the bearing is starting to go, you might as well assume the other parts are starting to go bad as well. This could be your voltage drop.
