HELP! Vibrations????

I have an 08 Tacoma Prerunner. I installed a 6in Procomp lift yesterday and I have a vibration coming from the rear-end/drivetrain. Only when I accelerate from 10-20mph. I did install the drop down spacers for the drive train (the 3/4 and the 1inch). I read in the instructions about a new bracket for the transmission, I would have to purchase. I havn't alined it yet - but I don't feel the vibration in the sterring wheel.
Has anyone else had this problem? How do I fix it? Or is this something I have to get used to? Has anyone had to use the extra tansmission bracket?

Thanks for your help-

I was thinking shims, too, but I'm not a 4x4 guru like chris4x4. Ask him.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You can, but it would be a custom build.

shims

Thanks for the help. I'm guessing the shims are for the rear axle?? This would rotate it up- Right? changing the angle back to normal. I know this sounds really stupid but thanks for the help.

rear axle shims will probably be your best bet..................but you can always put some spacers/stack some washers on the carries bearing....that will drop the drive shaft a little and may eliminate some of the vibes.

Whoa just seeing your reply.

Not to hijack the thread, but who could I get to make this? I called Tom Woods and they told me it couldn't be done.

Try what Will said first. Then, check your local phone book and look for a driveline shop. They should be able to make one for ya.

Ya already installed the kit from Toytec along with shims. I wonder if my shim angles might be too much. I got less vibration when I had just the CB drop.
