Have you had problems with your lift when starting? When i start from a stop i get a vibration because of the angle of my drive-shaft because of the lift. How could i remedy that?

Its a combination of things when it comes to the PC lift and im still working to get it resolved myself.. At least now it is only at start and not at cruising speeds. I have removed blocks to correct axle wrap and replaced with solid leafs. Since ive dropped my lift to 5" I removed the giant PC carrier bushings as well. I still have that little jitter at start and while removing the spacers we checked for play in the bearing and found more than a normal amount. If replacing that doesn't resolve it im either going to add shims in under the leafs or slowly add smaller spacers back into the carrier until it goes away.

This is a very common issue even with the 3.5" lifts. Some people recommend going to a solid driveshaft, but when I spoke to 3 different DL shops about it they said the driveshaft is too long to do that and not recommended. If I were you I would start at the carrier and get some smaller bushings and check the bearing. At some point I would also look to removing the giant blocks and getting a full leaf pack as well.
good luck man and feel free to PM me if you have any more questions.

I ended up putting it on after 2 months of contemplating, a week after I put it on and got it back from the shop, my pops got a new job which will require him to transport stuff back and forth and he'll be needing the truck. It wasn't an option for him to get a new truck since we just bought my mom a new highlander, so I have parted all my mods off the truck and restored it to stock. I am currently back to SELLING the STAGE 2 PROCOMP 6" Coilover LIFT. If you know anyone that is interested I'm desperate to sell it. I've lowered the price down to $2850.

Any of you guys running 35x12.50s with a 17x8.5" wheel? I want to go with a different rim when its time for tires...I really like the SCS Stealth 6 wheels but the 4.30/-10 offset has me concerned. From doing the math they are not too far off. Anyone running these wheels with a DB lift?

Currently running 18x9, 4.5 BS / -12 offset w/ 35x12.50s



Since this threads dying out...here's some pics from two weeks ago
