    Carrier bearing?

    I have a Old Man emu that I bought from Toytec. Works good.
    There is a member on here manufacturing something different of their own, it looks PIMP.

    they are really for if you have any kinds of driveline vibes. some folks have them with certain lifts...some dont. it basically drops the driveshaft for better angle.

    i have 2 inches of lift on my truck...and mine had some small vibes, and this took care of them on mine.

    I shimmed mine to a 1/4" drop with grade 8 washers from Lowes. Fixed my takeoff shudder, so I just torqued to spec and left 'em.

    Solid spacers would be better and a custom carrier bracket would be best, but I can't justify the extra cost when I fixed the problem for $3 and 10 minutes.

    Just got rear TSB AAL's an about to put a 2" spring in the front when they come in. Where is the carrier bearing? Is it on the trans side or the rear diff side of the drive shaft? Do you get the vibes when you raise the front or the back?
    @ Will. Can I see a pic of the CB drop thing you sell? I might need one.

    the carrier bearing is right in the middle of the 2 piece drive shaft. the spacers are 1/4 inch and drop the angle that much as well.

    check that link...thats the write up and there are a couple of pics in there.
