Carrier bearing looks shot... where to get new one?

Is there a better-than-stock carrier bearing that I can buy? Where from?

Stock replacement is your best bet if you want to keep the carrier bearing. They are pretty cheap from O'Reilly's. I think they are less than $20.

When mine goes, I'm going to have my drive shaft made into a 1 piece unit and eliminate the carrier bearing.

Oh thats cheap! I didn't think it would be that cheap.

I want to keep the carrier bearing because of the lift I just feel it's too risky to not have it. So basically any napa or o'reillys or autozone etc?

I like Oreileys and their parts but the carrier bearing they had looked really cheap. I don't remember the brand name of it but that was all they had in stock so I went to Advance Auto and they had a Moog for like 10 bucks more so I went with them. You could tell it was much better quality and it weighed twice as much. That's been over 2 years and no probs. I'd like to know if anyone had found greasable units ?

Are they a sealed bearing? Could you add a zero to the housing to keep it greased?
