carrier bearing!?!?!?

okay, so i blew my carrier bearing apart pretty much, how? idk!

i stomped on the skinny pedal as i was leaving the ranch getting on the county road. dad was behind me in his new 11' 6.7 cummins and he stomped on it also. well shifting from second to third i dropped the clutch too soon and missed the shift. finally got it into 3rd and got back on it. then to 4th, then to 5th. when i let the clutch out in fifth gear, the truck started making a hellacious noise. threw it into neutral and pulled over. my dad got out of his truck and said sparks were flying EVERYWHERE. jumped underneath the truck only to find that my drive shaft had moved towards the back of the truck and was rubbing against the blown out bearing. limped it back to the ranch and took out the drive shaft.

what im asking is why did it do this?

also, when i got back into town i went to oreily's and the carrier bearing is like 180 bucks!!! is this about right or is it over priced?

sorry for the long post. saturday night just was fun for me lol

The two piece driveshaft is a weak point that can't handle the torque of a diesel engine.
That's why Ford and GM went to a one piece driveshaft years ago, Dodge didn't figure it out till recently.
If you want a fix that lasts get a one piece driveshaft.
Someone here recently said it cost them just a little over $300.

Where does one get a one piece, or does it have to be custom made.

you need to get it made at drive line shop but keep in mind there are limitations to what can have a 1 piece.


length, hp, speed and lift, will all dictate what can use a 1piece.


inland empire driveline makes a wicked cool urathane encased billit carrier bearing that you guys should check out.

ive nuked many carrier bearings. at one point i was pretty set on the idea of a 1pc shaft, but after talking with a reputable driveline shop i decided against it. The QCLB would leave a pretty long shaft for aluminum (strength becomes an issue) and its too long for a steel shaft (too heavy and a bytch to balance)

I know when Ford made the switch to one piece they touted that the tubing wall thickness was three times thicker than the old two piece units.

i ran through 3 carrier bearings on my 3rd gen.

for a 2nd gen, you'll have to have one custom
made. anywhere from $400 - $500.

i just dont feel like spending almost 200 bucks for the stock bearing and im pretty sure a one piece is out of the option considering i have a qclb and a 6" lift.

How about all those big box trucks I see running around with 1 or 2 hanger bearings? They seem to hold up just fine, and they weigh a helluva lot more than our trucks. I've never managed to break a hanger bearing. True, my truck only makes a little over 800 ft/lbs without the nitrous, but I'd think that I'd have had some trouble by now if they were inherently weak.
