So im not sure why my truck did this and havent anyone on here have the same thing happen, but i pulled my carrier bearing out of the bracket. They say from too much travel, as the bearing only offers about 3/4"s of slide in and out.
So talking to a DS shop about either a 1 piece which will be the easiest but will have less clearance for the shaft. Or a complete custom job that keeps it a 2 piece but has solid bearing, think domestic, and a slip yoke in the rear shaft. The two piece will have much more clearance but will have to create a new bracket suppoft for the new bearing and will cost 50% more.
