HELP!!Vibrations after lift install

Installed my lift(billie 5100's all around, eibach coils, and toytec aal). Had some vibrations up front and drove it for about 2 weeks. Then I installed the one inch diff drop kit in hopes of solving the problem but of course it didnt. So im just trying to figure out the problem. If anyone has any idea what it might be lemme know, im gettin kinda desperate here

Diff drop has nothing to do with fixing vibrations... Look into a carrier bearing drop.

To be more able to advise, we need more detailed information. Does the vibration seem to be more up front, or more in the rear? You mentioned that you had some up front, then drove it for 2 weeks. Are you saying the vibration is STILL up front? How bad? What speed are you driving at where it is the worst? While the fron't diff drop helps get your CV shafts more in line, it does change the pinion flange angle of the front driveshaft, which is capable of some vibration. More info on the details of the vibration would better allow us to help.

Mind if I ask why you think that will fix the problem? Not enough information I would think yet.

because its the simple things that i would try first. kinda like . the head light don't work dude goes and buys head light twice and it ends up the fuse needed replacing . thats all and no money involved in re torquing lug nuts.
plus a lot off guys go with the ole German torque "goodntight". you are correct more info and pics of his new setup would be nice

Got ya. I was just curious since you didn't say much else, I was not sure if you had seen something specific I had missed.

Not to mention the lugs on our trucks are lug centric. If they aren't torqued in stages they will be offset causing vibrations.

The vibration is only up front. It almost sounds/feels like some kind of grinding sensation. It seems to be worse on the drivers side altough it is noticeable on the passenger side as well. When I installed the diff drop it did seem to lessen the vibes slightly, although the problem is still there. When I start to drive it starts to vibrate around 15 mph and continues until about 30 where it seems to go away until about 50 mph. Anything over 50 its vibrating again. I drove with the lift for about a week before I had it aligned, and about a week after that is when i installed the diff drop. I just tried to install the diff drop after reading a little bit about what it is supposed to do on here. I looked at my cv's and saw how angled they were so I hoped it would re-straighten them out at less of an angle. Ill try to get some pics up. The reason I only went with a 3 inch lift was because I was hoping to avoid these problems. I appreciate the help.
