Carrier Bearing Replacement

Recommended Posts

Morning FAQ'rs,


Need advice on changing out the carrier bearing (center bearing)


drove my car and the loud thudding I heard was the driveshaft hitting the bottom of the pan. My carrier bearing is toast.

I have a 68' long diff, has anyone changed this out themselves ?

was looking over the previous threads, looks like they have to be pressed in, though im not 100% sure as opinions differ. I want to tackle this myself but I don't have a press, my buddy has a press but not sure if it'll work.


Plus, I was wondering if no press is required, which end do I yank to replace the carrier bearing ? ( tranny side, diff side)


write up links, advice, tip, warnings, etc is great appreciated.
