I did not use the carrier bearing, and got anew driveshaft made. About $250 IIRC. You will also have to make sure a scrap yard find has the correct yokes for the ujoint.

It is always best to have a new driveshaft made, it is not worth dealing with questionable driveshaft histories, unless one is able to verify fitups and history. Driveshafts can only be shortened, not lethened.

Any driveline shop worth it's salt can build you a longer driveshaft, but it takes welding your yokes to a new continuous piece of tubing, not splicing on to the existing. Kind of expensive, but if your yokes are good, it may be a little cheaper than having them build a complete new driveshaft.

I checked out Denny's driveshaft and looks like they have great reviews. Gonna do some measuring and probably order one from them.
