I see a red flag here. If they don't look the same, they may have different gear ratios. This is critical in a 4 wheel drive. Front and rear gears have to match

How to change a front wheel bearing on a 97 Jimmy?


Vibration is usually caused by drive shaft universal join wear, but could be tires. A bad wheel bearing will usually only make a noise and you would feel a roughness in the cab or the steering wheel. You can check the U-joints by going under the vehicle, grabbing the drive shaft and see if there is lateral play at either end. If it is this, you will cause a lot of damage if it comes loose at either end, so you should deal with it promptly.

I have a 96 camaro and I need to replace my carrier bearing. Where can I find one?


I am not sure your car has a carrier bearing, but if it did it would be located on the drive shaft between the transmission and rear end of the car.

What is the part number for a carrier bearing on 1995 chevy camaro


(a little late in responding - but maybe someone will need this info).

If you mean the carrier bearing on the driveshaft - then you must have a v6 model. I would advise to skip replacing it and instead purchase a 1pc shaft (no carrier bearing). The cb is located near a Hi-Speed CV Joint which make changing the carrier a little difficult.
A new replacement 1pc driveshaft costs about $225.00
The carrier bearing itself may run $40-$140. ( http://www.fortwayneclutch.com/index.php/driveshaft-parts/carrier-support-bearings/gm/1993-2002-chevy-camaro-v6-pontiac-firebird-v6-carrier-bearing-new-f-body-carrier-bearing-for-v6-models-pn-s-3r80-40.html ) - for reference...
You could also check a junk yard for a 1pc oem shaft (most shafts there are bent or have bad uj's and will cost $$ to have fixed )
>1994-2002 f-body models all have the same length from the seal of the transmission to the center of the uj @ the diff.
>when looking for an oem 1pc shaft you will find them in Steel and Aluminum. Slight differences in length when measuring center to center of the universal joints ( 40 7/8" - 40 1/2" ) - but the slip yokes vary in length, weighted / non-weighted..etc = this will make it appear the the shafts are different.
>>watch out for oem shafts with the weighted slip yoke from manual 6spd v8 models. This slip yoke may hit the trans/exhaust mount that is used on v6 models.!!

Looking for the fireing order for my 1993 jimmy 4.3 votek moter


Here is the firing order for that vehicle and engine, however, some people can not figure it out (color coding and numbers seem to be too complicated for some) and have given low ratings for this diagram, and I will probably stop giving out this firing order. Let me know if you need help to understand this diagram, or require any further assistance.

Out put shaft came out of my output tube


It shouldn't come out, and you shouldn't have been able to put it back in. Check whatever is allowing so much movement that the two parts can separate. Change whatever it is (likely bushing or mount somewhere) If you have a lift kit in there it can change geometry...you may also have a problem there.
