Just traded in a tacoma with 266K....replaced the carrier bearing twice in that both instances, the bearing began to make a rather high pitched howl. I replaced both times with aftermarket parts, and the quality was poor. The factory part had solid rubber surrounding the bearing, and the aftermarket parts were hollow rubber (kinda like a tiny tire). original lasted about 150K, and the aftermarket needed replacing after about 80K. Pretty straight forward install, but needed a gear puller to remove a spline flange to access the carrier....not sure if the tundra is the same, but probably best to have the puller handy. I would suggest the factory replacment part if looking for a longer term fix.

PS....there will likely be a depression on one side of the is my understanding that this points toward the ground to allow moisture to drain.
