How far did you drop your Carrier Bearing?

Hi All,

Did a 3" lift with spacers in front and AAL in the rear.

I had a vibration at highway speeds and the 5-10mph vibration. I dropped the carrier bearing 2" and the low speed vibration completely went away and the highway vibration got much better.

Last night, I dropped the carrier bearing another 1/2. Low speed vibration is still gone and the highway vibration is even better yet.

before I spend time dropping any further, wanted to get your experiences and see how far you've all dropped it.

Is it worth playing around with axle shims now to smooth out the highway speeds? I think going any more than 2.5" seems a little drastic.

Thanks,

Andrew

1.5" for 3" lift or less:

I have read every thread on vibrations from almost every tacoma site.

Anywhere from 1/2" to 2.5" have been used/recommended. If going from 2" to 2.5" improved my vibrations, going to 1.5" will likely not help.

Just trying to gather experiences from people who have done this....and if so...were axle shims also needed.

Well, I'm at 1.5 drop and no shims. But I have SUA.
Only vibes I have are from one of my wheels where I threw a wheel balance weight.

2.5" seems excessive considering you only have a 3" lift. The goal of a CB drop is to make the two piece axle as strait as possible when loaded.
