Weird Shaking

I just installed my 2.5" leveling kit and my 35s. After getting my truck aligned I was driving home on the highway when I noticed a weird shaking between 45-49 mph. This is the only time that it happens so as soon as it hits 50 it is fine. Any ideas?

sounds like a death wabble. Look up videos on youtube and compare to what yours is doing, but that would be my first thought.

They gave me the print out of all the measurements and it seems like everything is in line. Could it be that my driveshaft is out of line?

vibrations that are speed related are usually tire balance issues, if this vibration occured after puttin on you're 35's. Try rebalancing. If you have aftermarket wheels that have to be static balanced (no weights on the outside) they are a little more tempramental to get balanced well. Good luck
