Anybody change the carrier bearing yet?

Like the title says. Anybody change one yet? How hard? Is it pressed or slip on? Mine is growling and its real annoying. Goes right through the cab like none other.

I had one pressed off and a new one pressed back on. Cured the same growling and a serious vibration. I couldn't get it off to save my life. Local shop charged $25 to do it.

Pressed. It's a pain. Was for me anyway. Might as well do Ujoints if you got it apart and down.

Was figuring it was pressed. Im 100% positive thats the noise. Had it off the ground the other day and put in it drive. Hadnt planned on this kinda fun right now. Lotta work for a 40 dollar bearing.

I had to replace mine as well, man was it a pain. Mine was shot to the point you could push the drive shaft up, down, and side to side. I actually thought I had a rear end issue until I did like you and crawl under it with the truck jacked up in drive. I would carry it to a local drive line shop and have them remove and press on the new on if you don't have the tools to do it.

As long as you don't have to take it off the shaft and press it back on yourself, it's pretty easy.

My Samsung SGH-I997 made me send this.

Thats probably what I am going to do. I have a press but to take the shaft apart to that point is sensless if they have an easier way.

Nice rig by the way!!!

Hate to re-qoute you but I have to. The look you have there is what I hope to achieve in the next few weeks. I got my 315's last week. found spacers and ordered the leveling kit. We have the EXACT same trucks except you have a CC and I have a SC.

I just did mine a week or so ago. You can do it yourself, you will have to beat the old one off with a BFH, and use a HUGE socket to beat the new one back on. It took me and my buddy to do this so one could hold the driveshaft while the other is giving it some good whacks.
The rubber in my old carrier housing was totally ripped and I had the vibration only at stop lights/signs until 10 mph.. If you go to NAPA, get the one that cost $110, it will be the spicer unit, the other one they carry is only $55 or so, but is made in China.. You can guess that I choose to get the spicer unit. GL


2000 F250 CCSB, 6" Lift, 20" Fuel Hostage rims on 37" Toyo MTs, BTS Tunes & BTS Valvebody, straight piped, Tru-Cool 40K cooler, scangaugeII, Autometer triples go in this week.
