Answer 1
You don't say if your Sportage is 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive. On a 4WD the drive shaft going to the rear may have a center support bearing. On front wheel drive vehicles with a transversely mounted engine the front drive shafts are often two different lengths, a short drive and a longer axle. The longer axle may have a center support bearing mounted on the engine block. -
