Carrier Bearing Replacement W/pics.

I had developed a vibration while towing and found that my carrier bearing was going bad.This is what I did to replace it.

I started by marking the driveline with a hammer and punch.This way I would have it in the right position when reassembled.


After I had removed the driveline I remove the nut that holds the carrier bearing in place.

A impact and 1 5/16" socket and prybar did the trick.Make sure you mark witch way the yoke slipes on the splines.

Then the fun begins!I remove the metal housing from the rubber and cut it off with a knive.


With a little help from a cutting torch the bearing was off the shaft.



I warmed the metal guard and it droped right into place with a tap from a hammer.



I set the bearing into place,then used the old bearing to drive it onto the shaft.

I used some thread lock on the nut and thigten the $#@* out of it with my impact.



Then I reassemabled from there.
I also used thread lock on the u-joint bolts also.I don't like drivline bolts coming out.

Not to bad of a job to do.Took about two hours,and no more virbration.

Enjoyed your write-up Beanhead even though my short azz truck doesn't have a carrier bearing.

The pics were great.

Now I hope Pete sees this write-up and turns it into a PDF.

You out there Pete? Work your magic.
