    So what I figured out is the carrier bearing is shot. Anyone with experience in this replacement

    Yes. You need a dial indicator to start with, and considering your pinion yoke is moving around, I think you would need to start over to have something that would last. Rebuilding from something like this is harder than starting from scratch. You would be much better off and save a lot of time if you found a good used XJ or ZJ front end

    I know it is not what you might like to hear, but it is an involved process. And considering the price of bearings and an install kit, you can probably get a used front end for about the same price

    Yeah wanted to do new but it almost seems impossible to get a new front axle. Plus the price is crazy.

    You never stated the year of your xj but since you talk about the 0331 head had been replaced. My guess is a 00 or 01. Look for a high pinion dana 30 95 or newer it swap in. Bit more stronger then the low pinion. And will bolt up.

    Well she’s gone.

    If anyone’s in the area and needs new injectors, coil pack, or head let me know.
