Why dont you guys just ditch the 2 piece DS and get a 1 piece DS? Just look for one from a 4x4 crew cab short box Frontier. You will obviously need the rear DS, NOT the front. Never have to worry about the carrier issue again!

Might be a silly question, but does the flange need to be pressed on? The only place I could find with a press was an engine machine shop and would only replace the bearing. The flange has about 1/4 left and I cannot get it to budge. Since I moved I no longer have a garage, compressor, friends, or even a work bench so I've been running into alot of road blocks.

edit. answered my own question.

Thanks for the write up will be replacing once my new one is delivered and will post results. I only vibrate at 65+ on highway with some grinding noise too. hopefully replaces wheel bearings and carrier will fix it.

I'm wondering the same. I have the part coming but don't have the specialty tools he had. Anyone done it with the basics. I'm sure I could wing it.

A drive shaft shop could do it if you have one near by

The u-joint yokes need to match end to end when reassembled right?


Makes me mad I did this!!!!

Did you ever get the vibration problem fixed? I did the same thing and can't get rid of the vibration even though I raised the carrier, lined up the yokes on each shaft.
