Reg Cab Lift Vibes/Grinding
Obviously the reg cabs are notorious for making this noise when lifted, although after searching through different threads it seems only people with manual transmissions get them. Has anybody had/heard of someone having the grinding/vibration noises that has an automatic?

Right now I have no rear lift and my billies at 1.75--no grinding, but Im considering doing an AAL and moving up to 2.5, but I've heard lots of stories of people grinding. Just cant decide about the cost/benefit haha

mine groans a bit. usually around 40-50mph when i left off the gas. Mine is also an auto.
George, I have the same truck/color/set up as you, except I have a 1" block out back.
