More than likely, the single row bearing - worst of the bunch based on the PCA IMS videos. Of course, do you know if any of the previous owners changed it out?

Replacement engine, rebuilt engine, already done, could be anything. Only way to be sure is to look at the mounting hardware with the transmission off. No matter what anyone says on the net, those associated with the most IMSs say the same.
