wow, yours still looks like it's in good condition, when I replaced mine the rubber seal around the edges were toasted and it was no longer round, but oval...

and it would be nice to have access to a hydralic press like that,I had to pay Nissan to do it for me.

Hmmmmm.

New carrier bearing, vibration and rattle gone for almost a day, then it was back - only not so bad.

Based on the Frankenleaf thread by Hessianben I pulled the 3" 2 BellTech blocks and me and Mr. Bridgeport milled a 5 taper on them. Hooray - absolutely no vibration!! The question remains: Was my issue the carrier bearing, or insufficient pinion angle? Only money will tell.

Before the redrill the raised carrier was a good idea (and probably starting to wear out).

After the redrill, the raised carrier was still a good idea, but now angled blocks were needed because the leafs got angled during the redrill. And by now the carrier was noticeably wearing out.

I would always recommend raising the carrier - it makes the driveshaft angles less unpleasant. And I recommend angled blocks.
i ask because i have mine redrilled and i am bagged and my truck vibrates quite a bit so im pretty sure i have to change out my carrier bearing but idk if it would help to raise it also ???

Raising it is cheap, and worth a try. Make a spacer (mine are machined solid aluminum), or stack some washers. An inch will be all you can fit. If that doesn't fix it, check your pinion angles.

SkinnyG... you have had the answer to EVERY issue I've been having with this truck... I think our rides are twins... gonna throw a 6 degree taper on the blocks and space the CB. Hopefully that kills the 1st gear shake and vibration at 35-40MPH
