driveshaft center support bearing

Hi everyone I found a problem with my Center support bearing. It appears that some sort of cover or race has dislodged and is jingling around against the u joint. What can I do here? I am thinking about cutting it off or using jb weld or epoxy to keep it in place since the noise is really annoying.

I was hoping that would not be the case. I'm on bearing number 3 in the 3 years I've owned the truck. I think it's time for the one piece driveshaft swap.

driveshaft carrier bearings rotate at higher rpm`s than wheel bearings do

use only motorcraft bearings ( they are manufactured by SKF )

SKF is the top tier bearing manufacturer in the world
