When you are so deep into the transmission it certainly doesn't cost much to get new bearings installed. Hopefully you can find a new crush sleeve between the bearings. And hopefully the new bearings doesn't alter the shaft position contra ring gear needing shim alteration.
Most of the time when things are done early enough, the ring and pinion match up again without having to mess with the shims. And without the special tool to measure, you won't know anyway.
