Carrier Bearing replacement time?
My '85 is getting amazing vibrations at speed that seem to be getting worse and worse. It's not bad in first gear, but as I move up to the higher gears it gets really bad when accelerating. After reading, I'm guessing it's the carrier bearing since my car has probably 300k miles on the driveline and has spent the last few years outside. I bet whatever I had under there is shot.
I looked at the TSRM this morning and it seems pretty straightforward to do. Is this something I can do in my garage with basic tools, or is it better left to a shop where they can get it up on a lift?
Thoughts or suggestions, please?--Peter--

assuming you can get the drive shaft out of the car yourself, it is very easy.
it helps to have a vice but you need to be careful not to squash your driveshaft.The Supra is gone... What a fun project!

easy to do. remove the rear drive shaft. use a socket and impact to break the nut loose. THEN take the carier bolts off the car to drop the front half. knock it off. put the new one on. put the nut on. put the front shaft back in. put the carrier bolts in the floorpan to hold it. make sure its in gear to hold it from spinning. tq the nut per the tsrm to push it on all the way. then break the nut loose. tq to final setting. then use a punch to pin the nut back down. put the rear shaft back in. done. took me maybe 10min when i did my 85, but i had it on a friends lift. prolly take longer working on your back under the car.
