I installed this on my 2000 Siverado 1500 2wd truck. My truck was shaking when going down the road. For the longest time I thought it was the tires. Turns out it was a combination of this bearing and the ujoints. The old center support was a real pain to get off. I have to cut away as much as I could with a cut off wheel. Then when I was down to just the inner bearing race you could use a puller with extra long arms to get it off. To get the new one one I used a 1-1/4" steel pipe. That just fit over the end of the drive shaft. I could then hammer the pipe to drive the new center support in place.
One other thing to note is the original center support has studs built in. You will need bolts to attach this replacement part.
Truck runs nice and smooth now. What a difference.
Replaced the self-destructed original on my 1967 GMC C15. Much higher quality than the OEM one (at least, as far as I could tell. The center of my OEM one was completely torn out. But the housing is sturdier!)
Note: You should really have your drive shaft balanced while you have it out to replace this. You bring this and both drive shaft halves to a shop with balancing tools, and they'll balance it to within a gram or so and then stamp the two halves for precision alignment. This makes a HUGE difference in the smoothness of your truck. And then your center support bearing will last far, far longer, since the drive shaft isn't causing the rubber surround to fatigue!
Got it promptly......well made.....installed it in about 45 min (already had the drive shaft pulled)......it is working great after months of use....well worth the price and FIT Perfectly in my 1992 Chevy S-10 4x4 with big V 6 engine.....Cheers!
