I was talking to bds and they said it was spring warp, the only way to fix it is to remove the blocks and put springs, or traction bars. I wish the dealer would of told me this. I also heard the shime the carrier bearing. Thats why i am looking for sugestions of what would be best to do and how to do it!! Does urs still do it, has it hurt anything?

You need to shim the carrier bearing that is more than likely the whole problem I had to shim mine around 1" with 5.5" blocks all better now! Traction bars are a good idea if you tow any weight or run the truck hard off the line contact Trevor at PMF he can help you out!

thanks so much for the info, What should i use to space it with. I thought the trucks rear axle was all one piece, and no carrier bearing. New to this sorry. And you think one inch would be good?? Also one last thing sorry, but is there anywhere i can go and find out how to do this??

First check and see if your rear driveshaft is one piece or two! if its two there will be the carrier bearing in the middle attached with two bolts all you would be doing is spacing it down to correct driveline angle. you can buy a kit for this or make one with some flat steel stock and get longer bolts but all trucks are different your may need more or less than mine you have to add and check to get it right. If you can drill some holes you can make the shims! There are some trucks that shims just dont help then here are Pmf carrier brackets that have tons of adjustment to fix the angle of the shaft or cv's in a custom driveshaft just a few options!
