I took a sawzall and cut the bearing mount out of the crossmember, flipped it upside down, and welded it back in using some vertical brackets to move it up and hold it in place. Took about 20 minutes, up on a lift with a sawzall, grinder, and welder handy. I'm sure there are other ways of welding it back in... I kinda did a quickie job, but it's worked great ever since, so I guess it turned out fine. I think there were some pics on here somewhere... I don't have them here, but I'll try to post them again on monday.

I did mine the easy way... unbolt it (while supporting the driveshaft), rotate it 180 degrees, and bolt it back in... 10-15 minutes..

oh, tighten the bolts a bit at a time, going back and forth...it can bind otherwise.

Yeah, that's what you're supposed to do when you drop it 3 or 4 inches... but mine was dropped a total of nearly 10 or 12 inches (when deflated LOL)

Mine was flipped upside down like that, too, but once I bagged it, I still had a horrible vibration, so I had to go a step further, as described in the previous post.

I attached a pic of what mine looks like now. It's moved up about 4 or 5 inches... no vibration at all!
