Hi,
There is a thrust block on the spider gear shaft. I'm checking your VIN for the part number right now.

Expert:  Doug replied 5 months ago.

To be clear, it is the part marked 34015B in the following schematic?

Expert:  Doug replied 5 months ago.

While I was waiting I did some digging on your VIN and it appears your vehicle no longer uses that thrust block. For that year the only applicable VINs for the thrust block are going to be 3.0 RWD models. All 4WD models have eliminated it prior to 2000.
So for your specific VIN, no the thrust block is no longer applicable.
