    Anybody know the size of the bolts holding the carrier bearing bracket up on an 06 Tacoma Doublecab 4x4?

    I put a Toytec AAL on the rear end of my Taco, and spacers on the front. So, I've got a little drive train noise. Looks to me like I might need to have as much as a 1" spacer on the carrier bearing to make that part of the drive train even out, but I'm not sure. Anybody got any ideas on that???

    Hmmm..... I should have been more specific in my first post. I need to get longer bolts because I need to lower the carrier bearing bracket, so what size/diameter is the actual bolt? I know they are 1" long and that I need to buy a 2" bolt. What I'm not sure of is what diameter the bolt is when I go into the store to buy them, and I can't take one with me cause I've got to have them installed to get there to begin with. ARGGGGGGGGG!!!

    Steve,

    What size spacer did you put in? Looking at the pic of the OME kit that Toytec and others sell, it would appear that that particular spacer isn't anywhere near 1" think (I'm thinking I may need close to 1" to get my drive shaft straightened out after installing my 3" lift kit).

    I could put a really thin spacer in with the factory bolts, but would that really make much, if any, difference?
