    RIGHT BACK TO OEM POSITION! IF YOU DO THAT AND STILL HAVE VIB. LOOK FOR ANOTHER PROBLEM LIKE A LOCKED UP U-JOINT!
    4X4?

    I agree with wetry, OE position before and after the repair is complete so index or mark everything before you take it apart so that you put it all back together in the same position as when you started.

    I THINK IT HAS A STOP FLANGE ON THE SHAFT FOR THE BEARING, BUT EITHER WAY I THINK OE IS THE ONLY WAY!

    you should put it back the same way as it comes from the factory, otherwise, new vibrations will occur
