Carrier bearing support

Hey guys i need to do the carrier bearing support on my truck and im wondering if anyone knows what size it is.
I checked the local parts store and they've got a few different sizes. Im also doing u-joints front and rear. I assume they are the same size?
By the way its an ext. cab 4wd auto trans if that helps

You have to take apart the center driveline section anyway, might as well take it apart and bring it to your local parts house. The bearing needs to be pressed on, my local Napa will remove and press on the new 1 for $20+parts. Hope that helps.

If you have a F 250 the size is going to depend on your GVWR. You can find this on the sticker inside your door jamb. I have what Ford calls HD witch is 8800 GVWR and my truck took the biggest that they had for that application. It is held on by two bolts and nuts. unbolt it and bolt the new one on. Hope this helps man.

A BIG HAMMER. It was too much of a pain to do it myself. I took to a shop, 10 mins later, I'm going home to put it back on

Getting the old bearing off sucks, putting the new one on is a breeze. this is going to sound nuts but I did it lol. I put the bearing piece of my drive shaft in the freezer and gently warmed the bearing, I mean warm not hot, with a propane torch. then stand the shaft up and drop the warm bearing into place....drops right on

Thats a great idea especially since its cold here right now. Any one know what size it is. The options are 1.37 and 1.57 inches
