    Does anyone know the Spicer part number for the center bearing on a 4WD truck? (I think all Tacomas use the same bearing - 1995 to present.)

    I have a part number 5002334 bearing, which looks to be the correct part, but molded into the rubber is "4x2".

    I have searched the internet, including Dana/Spicer's site, all to no avail.

    I ordered the part from Drivetrain America, a Spicer dealer, and even they cannot determine the correct part number.

    That is the one I have - mine has "4x2" on it, and I am 4x4.

    I wonder if there is any difference? I seriously doubt it, but want to verify.

    Threat revival!
    Did this CB work out for you? I am about to buy it on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GAPFESW) but the reviews are conflicting. I've got a 4x4 and I just want to make sure this is the right one. I use my truck for work so if I take my driveshaft out and its the wrong part I'll be up shits creek.

    I have not installed it yet. I will probably get to it next month.

    There is another part number for a CB that is supposed to be for 4x4 trucks. I don't have the number with me at work - I will have to get it.

    Thanks, I'll hold off for now. Are you expecting the 5002334 part to work just fine?

    I am on the fence - considering getting the "correct" part.

    But I am not really sure there is a difference.

    I just broke down and ordered the OEM CB for almost $200...Part #37230-0K030
    Caled my friend that is a mechanic and he said to go OEM if I wanted to never deal with this again. It should last the life of the truck. Original one lasted 10 years and 130k
