symptoms of carrier bearing wear

Is this light vibration under heavy acceleration?

I was also going to say U-Joint. Could even be a belt going in a tire. Rotate your tires, check for u-joint play, and inspect the carrier bearing. IF the vibration moves its a tire.

If the steady bearing is going bad it will be turning in the rubber if it has not turned then it is OK. Personally I like to put it on stands, and check the tires for bulges, bent rims, and bearing wear, you can run it up also but gently it is not the safest thing to do. also after a drive feel you shocks if one is cold it is junk

Yeah I have a long box. The carrier bearing kinda cracks me up, the drive shaft wobbles around in the rubber. Hard to believe that's enough to keep it steady. Shook drive shaft back at the rear u-joint. Seems tight.

The best way to check a "U" joint is to jack it up on one wheel, and with it in park on a manual in a low gear with your foot rock the tire back and forth, first just look at it any movement is a fail, second put your finger in the gap and feel for movement.
Works for me!

I replaced the carrier bearing & rear ujoint at same time. Vibration is all but gone.
I think that's the first thing that wore out other than tires and truck is over 70K miles.
Still on original factory brakes. Unbelievable. Never had a truck this reliable and trouble free.
Oh, I lost a backround light in 2 of my steering wheel buttons.

The lights going out in the steering wheel is one of my biggest peeves. I can't stand it. In my old F250, I actually completely dimmed the dash lights so I wouldn't notice.
