    Sorry to be a repeat offender. Wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. I remember someone posting a link to the center support bearing for our trucks from spicer I believe. I tried the link to the one at the bottom of the 1st gen section, but Amazon said it didnt fit. Anyone want to link it for me?

    2004 Tacoma 3.4 5speed.

    Thanks in advance!

    For reference. I think my rubber collapsed to the point that something is rubbing and causing a significant squeak above 20 mph.

    amazon is flat out wrong a lot of the time. i ordered a differential seal for the driver side and they shipped me the passenger side seal which is different. the part numbers were correct but Amazon's application note of which side was wrong.

    I'm about to order one of these soon as well. So if someone confirms this is the right part, that would be helpful.

    I used above in a 4wd. 2.7L. But I believe engine size doesn’t matter they all use the Same carrier bearing

    You wont be dissapointed. I took the chance despite what my Amazon overlords told me. Fit fine and dandy.


    Actually I called Drivetrain America, thats the PN they gave me and I ordered from them. Fit like a glove.0922181740a.jpg
    Made in Japan, Ill let you take a guess on who actually makes it.
