    yeah. added up the cost of changing it out and rebalancing drive shafts. I could just buy and new one peice. u-joints are cheaper to maintain than carrier bearings. Not really worried about clearance.

    I had my carrier done for $400. I had looked into a 1 peice after. Was told by a vender about Woods, also some TW members said to take it to a local shop have them make and install one. Other members will have better imput than me. If you dont get it replys tonight get this post going tomarrow.

    Did some looking around and found a well known shop in town. That will replace the carrier bearing for 100 and rebalance for 125. Shouldnt be more than 250 with uncle sams share. Thanks for all the input.
