    Well I answered my own question today. Napa does not carry them. Only place that does is the stealership. They want 220 bucks.

    The better coast
    Is there an upgrade from the factory one? I see a lot of people complaining about it but I never see anyone talking about getting a better quality one.

    Mine went out and I upgraded to a solid mount. It's super beefy and greasable. If you are 2wd you will need to have a slip joint added. I get minor vibes from about 50-55 mph. But they could probably be fixed with some type of rubber placed between it. It's nice having piece of mind. I have pics of it in my gallery I think. Bearing was $100.

    Eliminate the two piece shaft, go with a solid pillow block bearing, or pack it full of silicone, don't think there are any other options. Aside from another factory one that is.

    Also, I don't even notice the vibes now it's been so long. There is a thread about the bearing on ttora.

    I suppose I'd drill a few small holes in the outer surface of the carrier bearing so I could use a tube of silicone and a gun to pump it in. I'd have to actually try and see if that would work.
