Vibration- LIFTED TRUCK

Need a little help. I have an 8'' lift on the truck in my sig. Cant get rid of vibration. Trying to figure out the combo. between carrier bearing drop and shim in the rear springs. I know I need ladder bars, but I'm trying to get my driveline angles right before I install ladder bars.

Thumbs up

i ended up having to go with a one piece driveshaft in rear to get rid of my vibration 100%. i shimmed the rear diff and the carrier bearing drop 10,000 different ways and could not get it all out. the one piece rear with a dual cv did it. ladder bars definitely to stop the axle wrap.

I was thinking of a 1 piece shaft, but my local shop said it might be to long of a distance. Who made your shaft?

Ordered shaft from Driveshaft Superstore. It should be here in a week. Hope this fixes vibration. I will post the results when I get it.

So this takes care of the take off shutter vibration from zero to 20 mph or so? I've only got a 4" lift but its still pretty bad. Was this a custom length driveshaft or did driveshaft superstore have one already made and ready? And one last ?.... how much $ did you drop on it?

Thanks a bunch!

This was a custom built shaft. It only took them a week to make it & have it at my door. The driveshft looks awesome. They do good work, & are very good to talk to. It cost me 450.00. U should b able to lower ur carrier bearing enough to fix ur problem. When I had my 6'' lift, I had no problems at all.

It solved all my vibes too. I'm glad you got it straightened out. And I guess that is why the 2011's now have a one piece.

The truck actually has a carrier bearing block for an 8" skyjacker lift. I left it on there when I went to the 4". I wonder if to much shim could be giving me a problem?
