The center support bearing I removed from my 87 had fatigue marks on the rubber portion of the bearing, the bearing itself appeared to be fine. I also had vibration upon acceleration, U joints were not bad but I am replacing em since the drive-shaft is already off. I found a couple of gouges on the shaft, under the inner race of the support bearing, anyone know what kind of metal filler [if any] will work on that two piece drive-line?
