1. Remove driveshaft straps from pinion yoke.

2. Remove carrier bearing bolts from crossmember.

3. Match mark both halves of the driveshaft.

4. Separate the 2 halves & take the shaft with the bearing attached to your friendly neighborhood driveline shop or DIY oriented autoparts store. They'll press the old bearing off & press the new bearing on. Pick up some new u-joints while you're there.

5. Install the new u-joints, then assemble the 2 halves of the driveshaft. Make sure you align the match marks you made earlier.

Install the driveshaft assembly.

also an important item

I have an 89 chevy probbably the same setup.tighten the bolts to the bearing last.if you tighten them first you will stress the back yoke bolts.the carrier bearing if you look at it bolt holes are elongated for adjustment.So make sure you tighten the driveshaft yokes first and last the bolts to the bearing.
