    I am wondering what degree of difficulty it is to install my Driveshaft support carrier bearing?

    are you talking about removing and replacing the carrier bearing entirely from the drive shaft?

    Are you having carrier bearing vibes? Is this why you want to change out your Carrier?

    not only am i having vibrations, but when i grab my drive shaft i can literally lift it up and down in the mount i think the entire rubber part of the bearing is gone.

    and i am trying to find a respectable website to order it from since they seem less expensive any suggestions.

    I tryed lowering mine to get rid of the vibes, but no luck, and I didnt want to mess with it anymore. I didnt want to spend anymore trying to fix the vibe so I did a forsure fix, and got a Tom Woods one piece shaft. :) Best thing ive done for my truck...

    Use the stock jack and some 2x4's or 2x6's. I just dropped and installed a spacer this last weekend.

    j_cyrus thanks for the site just ordered it. I have ordered it from two other sites and they just take my money then send it back and tell me it was out of stock hope this site works better.

    Kilted Chiken is it basically self explaintory or did you have a manule or something?

    In your case I would replace it and torque everything to spec. Lift it up and slide the jack under to support while you but the bolts back in. Pretty self explanatory.
