HI,

It sounds like the carrier bearing isn't centered properly. It only moves about 1/4" so you wouldn't think it would matter, but Mine vibrated like crazy when I first replaced my bearing. When I loosened it I found that it had slipped all the way to the passenger side when I tightened it up. So I held it centred and tryed again, The vibration was reduced, but still there, so I pulled it as hard left(drivers side) as I could and now it is back to like before I changed the bearing. there is still a slight vibration, so I don't know if I need to slot mine and move it more, or If I'm getting into tire vibration now. I was too lazy to pull the wheels and was out of time, but i was amazed at how sensitive the truck was to this adjustment. I'm going to look for a one piece and swap it out.
