Default Drive shaft bearing rubber housing damaged?

G'Day. '86 240 DL here. My drive shaft is jumping up and down against it's spring and I am about to replace the bearing and universals. Two items puzzle me - I'll be replacing the tranny fluid seal in the tranny extension housing which I found at a parts store. But to my knowledge there is also a centering bushing in that extension which isn't showing up on the computer at the parts store. But there that bushing does exist yeah? And then the rubber housing for the bearing - if the whole drive shaft is jumping up and down, then the bearing is probably either binding or it's frozen and spinning inside the rubber housing meaning it's ripped the interior of the housing and needs to be replaced. They don't show that part at the store at all. Is this hard to get? I probably should not do anything until I have those parts lined up or I'll be stuck.

What's a good .com to order Volvo parts? Thanks!

re: good vendor, for generic (non-dealer-specific) stuff, I like fcpeuro.com and ipdusa.com

for dealer parts, www.tascaparts.com but you need to know the part numbers first.

be sure to mark the two halves of the driveshaft so you reassemble it in the same orientation, as they are balanced after assembly

i'm looking in my older factory parts catalog and not finding the transmission output shaft seal for the AW70 automatic so its likely 3rd party only now.

First, look for yourself under the car and see what you got, then go for the parts! Sounds like you have symptoms but never got to see what's actually going on...

Lev - I looked under the car with the rear wheels jacked off the ground and ran the engine and had a friend make the wheels spin. I saw the bearing jumping up and down against the spring. Without taking it apart to get more info there was no more I could do. So, you're wrong. : )
