Replacing Carrier Bearing

Hi Everyone,

I am looking to replace the carrier bearing and (u joints while I'm in there) on my 08 F-250. I do not have access to a lift so this will be done while on the ground. Am I asking for trouble by doing this on my back?

The carrier bearing has to be pressed on and off. Do you have the tools to do this?

I pulled my shaft and drove to the machine shop in 4hi. I think it cost me $25.

It cost me $178 at the shop, for Spicer Life u-joints and center bearing, installed.
The labor was $40 and included.
Sure didn't make it worth my effort, to do it myself.
And it came out all pretty, too.

I got a quote over the phone for $750 using more than likely auto zone parts. I better shop around a little more

Did Ford change this? Because I did my dad 2000 F350 and a buddies 2003 F250 and all I did was whack it with a four pound brass hammer

That should be good for a new bearing.

There was a video floating around where you make a contraption to press on the bearing with a hammer and different size pipes.

I think I saw that last week, looked like a lot of work from what I could see.

That's what I was thinking. Since I already have to take it in for the u joints, I wouldn't mess with just the carrier bearing.

Anyone have any experience doing this without a lift? I have a mechanic friend that will be helping, I just don't want to take the u joints off and then not be able to lift the damn thing because I'm on my back.
