    How much play are these bearings allowed approx. Upon installing my diff drop kit, i noticed that it is able to 'slop' around quite a bit. I didnt measure how much but wondered what the allowable tolerance would be if any at all.

    I don't know the anser gut when I was messing around with a carrier bearing shim install I was amazed how much it flexed around in the mount.
    I am sure it is in correct as it was the same before and after I shimmed it.

    Pretty sure that is where the very slight vibration comes from on take off.

    I also noticed today that there is a lot of play in my carrier bearing. Maybe a total of 1/2 inch. I too have a vibration during take off that lasts for a second or too. I swapped out my carrier bearing shims for rear axle shims to try to fix the vibration but it is still there.
