Svt carrier bearing question... PLEASE HELP!
 
I left the house today and within 2 miles had a big problem. I originally thought I broke the passenger side axle. After I looked at it the axle is intact but slid out of the tranny. The bearing mount is intact and the carrier bearing seems to be good. My question is, is there a rubber bushing between the mount and the bearing like on a full size truck? When I push the bearing back in the mount there is quite a bit of play even though the bracket is tight...
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

No, there is no rubber piece.
I had an increased amount of noise in the front end when I would accelerate. Looked at the pass side able, and I was able to "shake" the bearing in the bracket. Idk if the bracket and cap our just the cap needs to be replaced when the axle is replaced.

I'll save you the time (i spent weeks looking) Steve @ Tousley (sp) is the ONLY person that has them.

That's what I was afraid of... There is a lot of play in mine when I shake it... I have another bracket from when I did the motor swap but I don't think there was a cap on it... If I can't make something work I'll get with steve...
Thanks for info!
