It's really good there are a lot of nice guys here! 2012 Ram 1500 5.7Hemi, 270K(KM), has same issue in right intermediate shaft.
The problem make the vibration, special running around 110KM/hour
Has question: how can I find which brand and price is suitable?
The online web store has different price at:
$180
$250
$450
$550~
it also can buy single shaft at $43 from Rockauto, but suppose the all parts set here, the bearing more close damaged, I can't open it and wait to order parts again
So plan to one time work to replace wheel bearing hub, CV Axle, intermedia shaft sets(with bearing), which intermediate shaft is enough?

I finally found only need replace a CV axle, the intermediate shaft is strong enough, I bought the $180 one(include 2 sides shafts and all bearings, seals), only replace the passenger side shaft, Rockauto has the single passenger shaft to sell, it only C$65, if prefer only change this part, can only buy this part.

My 2012 Ram 1500 5.7V replaced two front wheel bearing hubs, passenger side CV axle, passenger side intermediate shaft.
one year ago replaced new front drive shaft; rear drive shaft replaced two U-Joint; rear wheel bearings don't find issue.
But it still some bearing noise start come from 40KM/hour, there is an obviously vibration in the speed of 105KM/hour
The noise sound from rear drive shaft, but it also come from the front part.
The next step is four wheel balance, show two video here if some professional one can find the true noise source:
By the way, after the front wheel bearing replacement, the fuel consumption changed from 14.5 to 13.5L/100KM :)
