Carrier bearing looks great, no play in the driveshaft anywhere, however i can grab either axle in the rear and shake it up and down quite a bit at the rear differential, more play there than any vehicle i've ever seen, I've had alot of AWD vehicles and rear wheel with independent suspension vehicles and never have i seen so much play up and down where the axle stubs go into the differential.
