Hello all, as you may know, my T100 has a carrier bearing goin bad in the thirdmember, i need to go to Morganton(spelling?) North Carolina, would it be alright to drive my truck as i need to pull a trailer, as long as i stop every so often to check gear oil levels, will it be ok?

Without really knowing how bad yer bearing is...it would be a chance at best on what it would do...especially if yer putting a load on it.

Worse it could do is freeze up and bust up yer rear axle or rip the driveshaft in half and taking out yer gas tank and underbody. It's yer call. I'd fix it before doing anything harsh with it... ;)

Take care of the third member first. Did you ever contact that seller? I looked over the piccies they sent me and it looks good. I would suggest that you have them send you piccies of the outside of the third member so you can compare it to yers. I didn't ask fer piccies of that... ;)

yeah I hear it. Mine seems to make a whining noise similar to that any time I am coasting, foot off of the gas, in any gear.

That's the kids in the back...you need to git them some sweets!! ;)

First you need to isolate where the noises are coming from. Don't just start pulling and replacing...it can git expensive really quick and you don't really learn anything from that except you run out of cash pretty quick. ;)

It could be...yer U-joints, the wheel bearings, the carrier bearing, the axle bearings, yer tires, or a combination of everything... ;)

How many miles you got on the truck? 2WD or 4WD? Auto or manual transmission? Got any piccies of the truck/bottom? ;)

If you can put it safely on the lift and have yer helper run the truck, use yer stethoscope to see what's causing and extreme noise. As you know, bearings going bad are pretty evident as well as U-joints. Just be methodical and see where it's coming from. :D
