Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today. I apologize for any delay.
It isn't best to go with a single shaft like this as usually the carrier bearing is installed to help support the length of a long drive shaft.This also helps to take some of the load off of the output shaft of the transmission or transfer case as well as the rear differential. The decision is up to you if you want to install a single shaft like this but it isn't recommended. It may last a long time for the lifetime of the vehicle with no issues but this would be taking a chance.
