Carrier bearing Removal/Install

So im looking to tackle my carrier bearing on my 1997 f-250 ex cab long bed 7.3l 4x4 on monday and decided to look for some tips. I am pretty mechanically inclined but haven't really messed with drive shafts too much. I hear the system is balanced and you have to mark things. What exactly do you mark? Pictures would help! If someone knows of a thread that is step by step that would be awesome as well. Thanks!

When i did the one on my last truck i didnt mark anything or balance it and i had no problems with it. Youll need new clamp rings for the boot on the driveshaft. The new bearing needs to be pressed on. or what i did was take a hammer and big flat head and slowly work your way around it. If you have a big enough freezer put the driveshaft in there and heat the bearing up a little to help it slide on

I haven't done mine yet but even though I do all my own work I will likley drop off the shaft and have a full service and balance done
saving me a few hours of cussing

if you DIY a lot of folks run zipties in place of the steel 1 use l OEM clamp

I don't see a reason not to mark the locations since it's free and will save second guessing if you pick up a new vibration

I'd mark the slip yoke so that the same splines meet up so the driveshaft goes back the same way it came out. Change the universals while I are there

I just did this on my '96. Just get a shop to press off the old bearing when you get the new one pressed on. It was the same charge no matter whether you already had the bearing off when you had to put the new one on. Save yourself the headache. I didn't mark it and have no problems with vibration or anything. Do yourself a favor though and get U-joints with grease fittings. I talked to a couple mechanics, and if you go through water or mud regularly, they're bound to get water in there eventually. Keep 'em greasy.
