Exclamation HELP! Why is my truck still shaking????

I have a shake that shakes the whole truck upon take off, stops after about 5mph and then starts again from 46 to 50mph. It has always done the shake on takeoff, but the 46 - 50mph shake just started not too long ago.

I have already had the tires balanced and rotated. I also just got the carrier bearing and all 3 u-joints replaced today. The shop that did the work told me that I shouldn't need a carrier bearing shim kit because the angle of the driveshaft wasn't bad. All of this has not had any positive effect yet.

Anyone have any thoughts on what else it could be? Thanks for any help!!!

I had a 6" lift on mine before the 8 and I installed the carrier drop and the shake was cured. May not be the same for everyone but thats what stopped mine

What carrier bearing drop kit did you use? I was looking for one, but there are a bunch of them out there. Thanks!

Well right now it has the superlift with the bunch of different sizes. I am going to use a piece of thick wall 2-1/4" square tubing for mine soon. Just make sure to lock tite the bolts
