Binding??? Is it all installed correctly??

Some people have put a small washer underneath the stud that comes through for the center carrier bearing to raid it up. Some people of had to do that and some haven’t depend upon the condition of their rear end bushings that mount to the frame. When you give the truck gas the rear and torqued down due to weak bushings and the driveshaft hits the frame.

Looked and did notice 1 of the front bolts that hold rear differential in broke some how so I will replace the bolt and clamp/screw. It drives fine and will update after I replace and make sure all is tight.

Actually first couple threads were bad, fixed and put in new bracket/nut for that bolt. Added 3 washers to each side of carrier bearing and the knocking is gone all for an additional $1.09. I actually spent my tires and all is good. t/u Todd Z

Just saw this thread... my 2007 V8 4x4 has 215,000 on the clock. It is in for PA state inspection and I got a call about rear carrier bearing. Shop is having trouble finding one. Options are $650 from Ford but not available- and price only goes north from there.
Any help on part number and place to get it would be greatly appreciated.
Love this truck and its the first time I have had any trouble other than normal maintenance items like pads, fluids, belts, tires, etc...

Talked with Colorado, seems like a good guy and it is a serviceable unit.
None in stock, but could assemble n ship pretty quick.
Do you subscribe to the 3 washer fix too?

Thanks for the help.
