there is a reason that many shops reportedly won't make them that long IMHO
I like having a center support and I use an adjustable drop carrier bracket that allows for the angle to be adjusted
I have an 8 inch lift for the last 20,000 and for the first 60,000 I had a 6 inch truck just rolled 100,000 miles
still on all the original u joints and carrier
I just bought a carrier bearing from ford for 60 bucks and will replace it for PM
the cost for a 1 piece is a con if the 700 estimate I have seen is true ?
the damage it will do if it gets loose is a con
less parts is a plus
other than that if I had a vibration i couldn't find I might spend the 700 bucks for one
but you won't be alone here are more and more folks giving them a try
EDIT I was typing when u posted can u explain your math of the 1 piece being 150 cheaper? not calling you out just curious
I bought my carrier bearing for 60 bucks and 3 u joints for 80 the pmf drop was 150 IIRC
the one piece was reportedly just over 650 I thought ? I guess you do have resale value in your old DS or maybe a discount from the shop who builds the 1 peice if you find a local shop willing to do this
Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !
