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.

Hey thanks for the info, i replaced the originial bolts with a bolt and nut, so maybe i did the same thing, i will be sure to try that. Thanks
