    Just did oil change, grease fittings and I find this, berring is way too loose. its a 99 4x4 with 130000 on the clock. With my bad leafs in the rear I am almost pulling my hair out . What to do first? Leafs or berring...p.s. money is tight.

    go with the carrier bearing. you can always get some cheap helper springs for the rear.

    I just checked mine. I've got *maybe* 1/8 of an inch of play in my carrier bearing. Is that considered "sloppy" and in need of replacement?

    I just changed out a carrier bearing last fall, the old one had lots of play but even the new one seemed to have about 18th of an inch of play.
