    It took me a few times under the car to figure out that I had a loose bolt that holds the carrier bearing bracket to the under body. Wasn't apparent in the multitude of times I checked the bearing itself for play, but the 1/4" of play in the bracket was enough to get the drive shaft shaking under WOT, low rpm. Might be worth checking if you haven't already. I had toyed with the idea of filling the void between the rubber and bearing race with Window Weld prior to that.

    Hmm... interesting.... I'll have to check that out... the dealer didn't really check it too much, but recommended I replace the whole driveline cause its a nonserviceable item... thank you for the tip as well as the contribution to the database...

    Yeah... I'm going ti have to change mine out again here pretty soon and I think I'm going to stick with the extra-s... I can usually get into first around 15mph...

    Just another thought, some people (i.e. the previous owner of my car) manage to put one of the bushings back on upside down as well, this is why the bolt was loose. It's pretty obvious when you take a close look at it if one is upside down; one half of the bushing is supposed to point up, the other points down. I think it's absolutely ridiculous that you can buy a carrier bearing for these bloody shafts.

    i read here that most of you are changing your oil around 3500-4500. the dealer is recommending 7500 on synthetic with my 2011. i was thinking of doing it every 5k. are you guy's running synthetic?
    Second place just means you were first too lose!

    You can't go wrong sticking with manufacturer recommendations. I change at 4500 and run fully synthetic oil. I could likely go longer than that, but I feel safer changing it out that often. You could always get oil analyses done after oil changes to ensure that you are changing at correct intervals.

    I have been using valvoline 5W30 conventional since my engine replacement and have been changing it every 4k... I plan on switching over to synthetic after it gets about 40k on the new engine to ensure that the piston rings don't alow too much oil loss via seapage...
