Sorry OP, did you have the normal tick, or BBQ tick, cause they seem to be different.
The guy who did the S/C had the BBQ tick, he wasn't sure why the tick went away, but they really feel it was the injector.
I highly doubt the bearings caused that sound, but at least they identified a serious issue.
