Hi need to know...

Hi need to know the letter thats on the carrier bearing on my 04 Impreza outback sport its a white tag with a single letter that i cant read-worn off sorry referring to the bearing on the driveshaft, its an automatic and can the u_joints be repaired on this part?

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Impreza?

2004

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Impreza yourself? What have you tried so far?

Driveshaft is vibrating 55-65 mph, my neighbor who repairs subarus has about 10 used ones need to match with the 1/2" sq white tag thats on the bearing in middle of driveshaft,i cant read mine it is a single letter

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When I look up a replacement shaft they are interchanged based on engine size and transmission.
What size engine?
Turbo or not?
Auto or manual trans?

Is there anyone that can help me with this problem??
Auto Mechanic: Mazda Ed, Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
My interchange is showing that 02-05 will fit as long as it’s 2.5 Auto non turbo. Does you neighbor know what cars his shafts came off of?
If you give me your zip code I can locate you a used shaft. I see plenty available at $100 or less.

Its 80457, I'm finding it hard to understand how the letter designation on the carrier bearing is not recognized as important to proper identification, it has to b ed on there for some reason, a lead on a used one would be great thanx
Auto Mechanic: Mazda Ed, Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
I don’t know what the letter code is for. I’ve never been asked for it and didn’t even notice it was there!Subie Recycler Inc is showing one for $100.00(###) ###-####
