Is your carrier bearing shimmed properly?

I have the same problem. My carrier bearing is shimmed very close to perfect, but I was told that my problem may go away with one more shim.??? I was also told that a one piece drive shaft will knock out that problem... I'm gonna try the shim first cause its WAY cheaper! I priced a one piece shaft @ around $400...

one more question. do the 1st and 2nd part of the drive shaft need to be at the same angle? because from what i can tell they're in line with each other almost looks like a one piece.

It dosen't matter as long as the angles cancel each other out. You would need a protractor to check them all.

Maybe your old bearing was letting the propshaft sag and the driveline angle was correct. Now your new bearing picked up the shaft a bit, causing your issue.
