Not sure.How would I tell which one it is?

You might need a differential drop front and rear, i've heard that can cause vibration after a lift. Try runnin your stock tires to eliminate that though first.


edit- sorry just saw that the kit came with a front diff drop but anyway maybe the rear needs shimmed

not to be rude but that lift kit doesn't seem very high tech. it seems to be lacking parts.

It's a spacer lift. They aren't high tech and don't require many parts. It's the equivalent of your GF/wife changing from sneakers to high heels.
