i wanna use it in a 87 wagon with d/r 5spd
i dont understand why they put a carrier bearing in a
independent susp rear end.....

The next thought is that with four basicly different body styles you would possibly of had 4 different drive shaft lengths.
(SO I'm just shootin' the breeze here) If the company wanted to streamline assembly costs then the first half up to the carrier barring would be the same for all cars.
Next is that they could have say two or maybe 3 short shaft extensions that are different allowing for a lower cost for assembly of this section of driveshaft in the order of "1000's"....
But i did find that a sedan shaft from a 88 was a little to short for the 86 i had - then i found out that the 88 shaft was for an auto tranny yeah I was ahhh admitting oops on that one when that happened. LOL so there it sits up in michigan for as far as i'm aware still in the rafters of the barn....
