On a lot of lift kits you will see that you're asked the question; Does your truck have a 2 piece driveshaft?
A 2 piece driveshaft means that your rear driveshaft will have a u-joint in the middle of it. This is generally on long box trucks where a driveshaft that was built from a single peice of tubing could be too long and could possibly cause a vibration if it is ever a bit out of balance. If you do have a 2 piece driveshaft then there will be a bearing to support the driveshaft near the center of it. This is called a carrier bearing.
