Some manufactors use a plastic injected dowl you can tell by looking at the ends of the u joint and if theres clips just pull clips and find a socket that fits inside diameter and it socket with hammer till u joint pushes over take cap off do the same on other side if no clips take a tourch to the ujoint and that will melt the plastic dowl and replace with normal clips should come with new u joint

AFTER REPLACING U-JOINTS & HANGER BEARING ON MY 1995 VOLVO 960 I HAVE VIBRATION AT SPEED PARTICULARLY UNDER ACCELERATION. I TRIED ANOTHER SHAFT AND IS WORSE. I THINK IT MIGHT BE HANGER BEARING ALI


did you mark the two ends of the shaft at gearbox and diff
so they lined up again
with the center bearing replacement
did you mark the two halves before separating and replacing the center bearing
then make sure they lined up again

if vibration is there
you may need to go to a diff shop and have the drive shaft balanced properly

very informed drive shaft write up.. on volvos

How do I replace my carrier bearing in a 1988 Chevy Silverado extended cab long bed?


I'm guessing your you are referring to the drive shaft center support bearing. Remove u-joint 4 bolts at rear diff., then 2 bolts for center support. Slide driveshaft assembly out of trans. and lay on ground. On either side of the center support, make alignment marks on front and rear half of drive shafts with a crayon or tape (very important for re-assembly). Slide rear half off. Press out center support. Clean sleeve with emery cloth or 400 grit sand paper. Press on new center support, lube splines and reconnect drive shaft halves making sure alignment marks meet. Install assembly and torque bolts.

How do you remove the center support bearing on a 1997 c1500 chevy drive shaft


The bearing should slide off the drive shaft. You should be able to buy the bearing and mount together. If the bearing is froze on the shaft you may need a torch.

How hard is it to replace that carrier bearing on the drive shaft. i have a f250 2000 superduty.


Pretty easy! Here are the steps:

Removal & Installation
  1. Remove 2 center bearing retaining bolts and remove the center bearing and driveshaft assembly.
  2. Check the center bearing for wear or rough action by rotating the inner race while holding the outer race. If wear or roughness is evident, replace the center bearing assembly. Examine the rubber cushion for evidence of hardening, cracking, or deterioration. Replace as required.

To install:

  1. Place the bearing in the rubber support and the rubber support in the universal shaped support, if removed.
  2. Install the center bearing and drive shaft assembly. While supporting the center bearing in position, install 2 retaining bolts and tighten to 39-53 ft. lbs. (53-72 Nm).
  3. Road test the vehicle and check for proper operation.

How to replace the center support bearing and what size bolts or if studs are used what size nuts are required? Also what is the best tool to use for changing the spark plug behind the steering shaft?


The center support bearing is secured to the cross-member using either a stud with an 11/16 in. nut or sometimes an 18mm nut. or it can also be sucured using a 3/8 in. bolt with a 5/8 in. bolt head and either a 15mm, 5/8", 11/16", or an 18mm nut, and GM did not stop the assembly line when they ran out of a certain nut or bolt and that is why there could be so many different ones used.

(A split drive-shaft is a balanced unit and it must be marked for proper alignment before separating the two halves or the drive shaft will no longer be in balance and will cause a vibration and early u-joint failure, and be very sure that there is a line on each half of the drive-shaft before it is separated so that the drive-shaft can be aligned re-assembled correctly)

The center support bearing should be pressed off and on the drive shaft using a hydraulic press, (a machine shop usually does not charge very much to do that) and using a hammer and a drift to replace the center support bearing is not recommended however some people do replace the center support bearing that way and a lot of the time they will damage the drive shaft or center support bearing and that will only make it more difficult and time consuming to properly install the center support bearing.

(The u-joint and the axle yoke should also be marked together before the u-joint is removed from the axle yoke so that they are installed back in the same way that they came out to prevent any drive shaft vibration)

To change the spark plug behind the steering shaft use a spark plug socket (a good spark plug socket will also have a provision for attaching a 5/8" or 16mm wrench to the end of the spark plug socket) and instead of putting an extension and a ratchet on the socket, slip the socket onto the spark plug and then use the wrench to loosen the spark plug and to tighten it, but also use a length of 3/8" fuel line and push the end of the spark plug into the fuel line and then use it to start and run down the spark plugs and also to remove the spark plugs once they have been loosened.

It is 2 wheel drive and is the drive shaft it has wheel bearing support is 2 part drive shaft and the noise is after 55 like every second like scraping noise


It can be a u joint,or the drive shaft bearing,some call it drive shaft support bearing,or swing bearing.Moving the drive shaft up,and down should tell you if the swing bearing is bad,it should not have no movement up,or down,or side to side.It should stay centered in the housing,surrounded by rubber.

  1. Remove the tire and wheel center cap.
  2. Remove the drive axle nut.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the tire and wheel. .
  4. Remove the brake rotor.
  5. Disengage the wheel drive shaft from the wheel hub and bearing. Place a brass drift against the outer end of the wheel drive shaft in order to protect the wheel drive shaft threads. Sharply strike the brass drift with the hammer. Do not attempt to remove the wheel drive shaft from the wheel hub and bearing at this time.
  6. Remove the wheel hub and bearing from the steering knuckle by removing the three bolts coming in from the back side of the knuckle.
Of course you may have to use a hammer to loosen the bearing from the knuckle.

Good Luck
