Carrier bearings are in the rear differential,and when they go bad,you will have a VERY noticable grind noise come from the rear and some vibration. They are reltively easy easy to replace yourself,though a good shop will charge around $200 for parts AND labor.

REPEATLY worn out carrier bearing on my 2001 GMC Sonoma extended cab ( 4.3 , 4speed auto 2wd) what could be the cause of this even after I've had it rebalanced?


  • If the bearing fails and seizes up, the rubber will be torn away from the bearing. The seized bearing can tear away the rubber mount that supports the outside of it allowing the bearing to rotate with the driveshaft. This allows the driveshaft to wobble up and down causing a vibration.
  • The rubber can also deteriorate due to age or contamination with oil. The driveshaft will operate at the wrong angle and vibration or noise will result. The vibration occurs most often during hard acceleration.
  • A worn center support bearing can cause a whining sound that varies with vehicle speed. The noise is constant in pitch, rather than changing or intermittent like U-joint noise.
  • If the truck has been raised , the alignment of the drive shaft will also change, A damaged driveshaft can exhibit a variety of symptoms. A clunk that is heard when the transmission is shifted into gear is the most obvious. You can also encounter unusual noise, roughness, or vibration.
    NOTE The engine, torque converter and driveshaft change in frequency as rpm changes. A rebuilt torque converter is often the cause of a vibration that is rpm-related.

    To help differentiate a potential drivetrain problem from other common sources of noise or vibration, it is important to note the speed and driving conditions at which the problem occurs. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to accurately pinpoint drivetrain problems with only a road test. Expand the undercar investigation by putting the vehicle up on the lift, where it is possible to get a good view of what is going on underneath.

    • Check the companion flange, carrier bearing, pinion shaft seal, and pinion bearing, transmission's extension housing seal and bushing, and the u-joints.
    • Check the driveshaft for runout, or the amount that a part wobbles up and down or side to side when it is in motion.

check your tires for a bad spot or a knot. this could cause the vibration. check you switch and see if it has power. if it does maybe the a relay.could also be a lose ground wire.

Van rumbles and vibrates


Does this van have a carrier bearing in the center of the driveshaft? If it does this could be your culprit,you can tell if it has a carrier bearing by looking at the drive shaft in the middle it will around the driveshaft and bolted to floor support of the van.

Ford super duty vibration/shake


The carrier bearing should not move at all. It is mounted in rubber to give a little. But, it should not move freely. If this is the case then something has gone bad. The carrier bearing would cause this vibration as it spins if it is loose.

Vibration with vehicle speed


make sure your u-joints are properly line up. there should be a slight rasied area the end caps should sit flush on. its common when someone doesnt double check the seating on U-joints. i have done this a few times. If the truck was on a rack hope that the drive shaft was not hitting the rack causing it to bend.

the scraping noise may be the carrier bearing TQ'ed too much? what did you TQ it at? they are very sensitive.
good luck, hopefully its just out of alignment with the u-joints and improperly TQ'ed bearing.

2002 ford Ranger 3.0 v6 (auto) rear end noise when accelerating on curves.


Remove the drums and check your rear brakes. If okay, you may try testing a couple different tires in the rear. Belts separating and flat spots show worse at higher speeds.
It could be bearings if truck is used alot while loaded. Remember 1/4 ton is only 500lbs. High miles, hard driving, or if it was wrecked in rear could all cause these smptoms.
