Question about acceleration

Hey guys, I have a question for you about an odd thing I get when I first come off the line from a stop. I'm used to driving SUV's. I have never had a big truck until I got my 6.4 so it may be something common to HD trucks. When I take off I get kind of a shudder. The best way to describe it is like there is a little slack somewhere in the drivetrain that is being taken out when I accelerate. I dont think it's been doing it the whole time ive had the truck but maybe ive just been ignoring it until recently. It doesnt feel like anything major but i'd appreciate some input. By the way it's an 09 cc sb 250 with 12k miles, completely stock. Thanks.

Sounds like turbo lag, nothing to worry about. The turbo runs off the exhuast and take a couple seconds to spool up and build boost. That's the delay you feel off the line.

Turbo lag actually causes the truck to shake a little bit?

no, that is more a common issue you are having. do a search for carrier bearing shims i believe it is. there were some fixes.

No, its a trouble shooting aid for technicians. however if you have the issue, and are under warranty then the dealer should fix it for free because its a warranty issue.
