SOURCE: I have a 2007 Lincoln

First, I wouldn't be at a dealer

I mark all my drive shafts, as installed, and take
them to a driveshaft shop that,makes or repairs them

I have ALL driveshafts balanced

I have a Lincoln LS ,so I'm guessing your
newer MKZ is front wheel drive ??

Having once owned a trans repair shop, your
transaxle ,if that is what you have, will have to
be stripped clean, to do the bearings your talking
about

On a rear drive, such as my LS, you still have to
remove the rear differental case and strip it, for
brgs

The $700 sounds like a dealer fishing for a solution
to a rear wheel drive vehicle with a vibration

They try a new drive shaft,why not,only your money

Where is the carrier bearing on 2008 Lincoln MKZ awd? Is it an expensive repair/replacement? Are there more than one?


its part of the driveshaft their incorporated you have to go under vehicle and will c the drive shaft the center carrier is at the end towards the front of vehicle some vehicles carriers were designed to allow just the carrier be replaced but this one its part of the drive shaft so the whole shaft has to be replaced with it look at carrier and joint move shaft side to side and back annd forth should be tight not sloppy or noisey (clicking)if it shows damage or wear replace unbolt from rear than unbolt carrier bracket and remove unit

Can i replace my driveshaft with a used one


you will have to remove the tail shaft housing and replace the bushing, and yes you can replace the drive shaft with a used one just make sure its not bent, no they are not balanced vehicle to vehicle.. they are put on a balancer just like a tire, only the machine is a little different obviously

Rear end noise, shaking


Check the rear driveshaft u-joints. Most likely the rear u-joint at the differential is seized/seizing. May here a rotational squeaking at low speeds. If you want to check it yourself. Remove the rear driveshaft and move the u-joint in each direction and check for tightness. Do so with both ends. Let me know how it works out for ya!

Have vibration ujoint broke at transfercase had to replace driveshaft with used one have vibration now whats my next step


Find a shop to balance driveshafts and replace the U-Joints. You either have a bent driveshaft or a balance problem or bad U-joints.

If you have the time, the only other thing you can do is mark the driveshaft and remove the driveshaft and clock the flanges. But remember that each flange is 180 degrees difference because most U-joints have a big and small bearing cap. So to get an effective 90 degree change just make the change on 1 flange and reassembly and try it.

This is why a company which balances driveshafts is a good idea.

Please rate my info.

Front wheels making too much noise, and drive shaft spare parts problems


first thing to do is get the wheels balanced and see if that helps.sometimes if the wheels arent balanced correctly it can send a vibration up the shaft.if problem persists then get new driveshafts

If you are talking about only the drive shaft joints being bad,take it out and take it to a driveshaft repair shop. Look in the yellow pages or call a trans shop and ask who they use to check,straighten and balance drive shafts. About $150.00 and may do it while you wait. Might as well put new joints in the rear one and balance while your there.

Driveshaft yoke balancer


Remove it. Then drive the truck to see if it vibrates. If it don't forget it. If it does, replace the driveshaft. But get it off there before it breaks something.

Driveshaft yoke balancer


I had the same problem and removed the balancer from the drive shaft this morning. I put the drive shaft back on, and drove the truck around all day, highway, city, stop and go, there were no problems, and the noise was gone, and I had no vibrations at all. So you should be fine if you remove the balancer.
