Have you looked at your carrier bearing on the drive shaft? I'd be looking at that before I went in to the rear axle.

Unless you have a standard cab long bed or an extened cab short bed, it will look like you have a two piece drive shaft. That big round thing at the end of the short shaft is the carrier bearing.

How much movement should be in it? Little to none? I'm a heavy duty mechanic by trade and I'm guessing what you call a carrier bearing I call a support bearing or center bearing lol thanks for the info

It's probably the same thing. Just the thing that holds up the drive shaft in the middle. Should be little play to none, like you said.

Now, I'm not too good at axle or transmission things for that matter, but do these trucks have rear wheel bearings?

No, but there is a bearing in the outer rear axle housing (can't remember if its in the housing or on the shaft) and another bearing on each side of the differential carrier. When the middle eight bolts are removed, the axle shaft slides out.

That's what I would do. Carrier bearing failure is more likely than axle bearing failure.
