O6 F250 center carrier bearing.....

How much slop should the carrier bearing have? At about 50 mph and beyond, I have a vibration. You can't feel it until you hit 50-55 mph. Its definitely coming from the rear. It's not shaking the truck apart, but noticeable. I can grab hold of the drive shaft right at the bearing carrier and move it an 1/8 of an inch or slightly more. The truck has 170k on it. Just trying to get an idea. Thanks in advance!

U joints are good. The tires are probably 60% worn. I'm gonna get them rebalanced. Start with the simpest solution, work toward the hardest!

I had a driveline shop pull my two piece drive shaft last fall. The U-joints and carrier bearing were good but both shafts were out of balance. Truck feels a lot better now. I'm still fighting tire balancing issues though
