driveshaft vibes shims or carrier drop???

What works better for vibes ? I just lifted my 06 dclb and have some vibe @ 20-30mph. the shims cost more and take longer to install ,when the ome carrier drop is cheaper and looks like a 10min job. Any opinions would be great thanks.

You are correct, so far. Try the drop first, try the shims second, try both third.

Strange, with my first lift I had no vibe issues, then when I put on my new coils I had vibes right off take off, then when i finally cranked my coils up my coils dissapeared and the truck drives perfectly straight with no wobbles or vibes or anything. Good luck.
