I was reading about this today in my 03 Silverado Factory Service Manual. It only lists 3 steps. 1. Remove drive shaft from vehicle.
2. Remove the center carrier bearing by doing the follow:
2.1 Stand the propeller shaft on end in a press with the center bearing supported by press plates, one on each side.
2.2 Press the propeller shaft down and off the center bearing.

I can scan the page for you if you would like but what is above is verbatim out of the manual.

You may want to spray some WD-40 or something like that around the bearing if it is rusted to help press it off the shaft.
Hope this helps.

How to replace carrier bearing??

Postby SilveradoZ-71 » Sep 02 2012, 5:28am

You'll have to pull off the cover, pull the c clips from the axles and then slide out the axles. Then you can take off the bearing caps(keep track of the shims and make sure you put them back where they came from). Then the whole assembly will come out. The bearings press on. I usually cut them off with a torch. Press on the new bearings and reinstall assembly. This is where you'll put the shims back. Be sure to check your gear teeth pattern and backlash! If it's ok then your ready to stick the axles back in and the cover back on and fill w/ lube. Hope this helps!

Sorry I should of been specific. It's the bearing on the driveshaft. It's a 2003 CCLB 4x4 with the 6.0. It's a two piece driveshaft. The thing is I don't have a press in my garage so something like a huge bearing puller would seem to work. I found me a you tube video on it and they used a big bearing puller and a piece of two inch pipe to install the new bearing. Until then I'll try and find me a puller and Im sure I have a piece of pipe laying around. Thanks for the input guys!!

Sheesh, you had me wondering if I was out in left field! :lol:
I work in a hydraulic shop and we have a 10 ton and 100 ton press. You may be able to find someone at a tranny shop or machine shop that will remove and install the bearing for a nominal fee, ie. case of beer!

This is my latest update. I haven't replaced the carrier bearing but I found a local drive line shop to take the whole shaft and replace the carrier bearing, u-joints and have it balanced. I haven't gotten any prices for it but that's the route I'm going.
