Question about 1997 Ford Ranger SuperCab
The carrier bearing on the split drive shaft is shot. I bought a new one but i'm not sure of the procedure to disassemble drive train for replacement. I noticed that there is a rubber sleeve connection, which is compressable, located just behind the carrier bearing. Any & All advice would be appreciated

I am assuming this is an all wheel drive. That being the case you probably have an axle CV joint going out. If you hear noise when making a sharp left or right turn and accelerating that would more than likely be the problem. And, yes this is a serviceable part. Easy to replace if you have the proper tools to accomplish the task. Good luck.

There is a 'keeper' gasket contained inside a thin sheet metal 'nut' that screws onto the yoke. Once this is unscrewed the cork seal is free to pop out of the splines just like the slip yoke is and it all just comes apart after that? Water pump pliers is what I use to start undoing the sheet metal 'nut', don't forget to tweak it back tight when done.

I have the same problem and the dealer told me it would be months. He also said it would be ok to take the rear driveshaft off and drive the vehicle until the parts come in.

Hub bolts are around 65-70 foot pounds, axle nut is about 120-130 ft pounds. These are not super-critical. Many at shops are installed using air guns and work just fine. Your main objective is to not have them come loose. If axle nut has a cotter pin, never back off on nut to install. always tighten to get holes for pin aligned.
