    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...

    Are you saying 3 washers between bracket and under body mounting point?
    Centerline of driveshaft and mounting of bracket is just that much off?
    Thanks for the help....

    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.
