I believe that this is built the same way that all of the others I have done. Pull out the drive shaft (both parts and carrier) out from under the vehicle. It is much easier to fix out from under the truck. It will pull apart, the male and female splined shaft. Slide off the carrier bearing, and reinstall. Best of luck. This is probably the least expensive fix of the options that could be wrong. It could be in the rear end, pinion bearing or axle bearings. These are more expensive.

Good luck!

Does this separate the front half of the rear drive shaft into two pieces? so that you can slip in/out the center support bearing?

the picture below show where the front and rear halves of the rear drive shaft meet. I am referring to the arm that is between the u-joints and the center support bearing.
So. Did you find a way to separate it? I have the same prblem on my 2011 and I have no idea hwo to separate these two parts or even where to buy the center support for 2011. But it is in bad shape and it's vibrating a lot

The center support or carrier bearing should be at least available at your local dealership? You may be waiting a while for an answer from the OP, this thread is 5 years old and I don't recall seeing the OP around these parts of late.

On my 2011, Screw, They replaced the whole drive shaft, because the center bearing was thought to be causing the vibration I have. There is a TSB on Center Bearings, going bad. 60,000 mile power train warranty will cover it.
