Zone 6" radius arm lift issue 08 f350

Just had a Zone 6" radius arm lift kit installed on my 2008 F350. A local truck shop installed it, I am happy with the overall look of that lift. I had the install the dual steering stabilizer shocks and upgraded to the nitro filled shocks on all four corners. Since these trucks have the two piece drive shafts, the carrier bearing kit was needed.

I am currently having issues with slight vibration at highway speeds (over 50mph) when I decelerate.

The truck shop has been notified and said that some type of rear wedge block will need to be installed to compensate this issue. They are going to fix labor free this Friday when I have my next day off.

I am curious to see if any other super duty owners have ran into this issue when lifting their trucks w the two piece driveshaft.

Thanks guys

Front vibrations at speed are usually attributed to excessive pinion angle of the front driveshaft/pinion. Do you know what your caster is set to?
