Carrier bearing play.....

I looked under my truck and saw my carrier bearing has some play in it. I can pick up the driveshaft around the bearing area, and can push it up about 1/2" or better. I am thinking this is bad. I have never any experience with these before. The rubber section around the bearing is loose inside the "U" shaped peice. Is this good or bad?

I'd say a half inch is too much.... you should be able to move it only slightly.

I just changed mine out, same year as yours. Not a bad job. If you're lifted, might as well shim it at the same time.
