Spacer/Adapter....PROBLEM! Please help

I have a 2004 tacoma 2wd. I recently purchased a set of 22" rims to put on my truck,but to be able to put these rims on I had to buy a set of 1 1/2 spacer/adapter to go on it to make these rims fit. So i put everything on lifted the truck two inches front and back and it all looks awsome! but..... now, when im driving down the road everything rides good from take off and on but once i start pressin the brake the Whole front-end of my truck starts shakin reallllly badly. I have checked all the adapters and all the lugs and everything is sitted properly.I cannot figure it out but it rough when pressin the brakes. Any ideas?

May be but it's a stretch. Any time you change the geometry of the suspension, you need to get an alignment. Post up the specs, wheels, tire size, etc.

X2 on how did you lift it.

Are the 1.5 " spacers spring spacers or are we talking wheel spacers?

I lifted the rear with 2" blocks and i use coil boosters for the front. tire size is 305/40/22 hancook tires and BIGG WHEEL 22"rims. and we are talking wheel spacers...actually they are 1.5" adapters,you basically bolt on the spacers to your orig studs and these come with new studs on them

Try throwing your stock wheels/tires on the front without spacers and see what happens.

Only happens when you hit the brakes..? Brake problem? Did you torque your UCA etc tight?

Front only or front and back?

Try getting an alignment, you are running a low profile tire it might be the tires amplifying the road bumps. especially if your tires in the front looks like this \ /

+1, way to many variables. Any of of those mods could cause vibes if not installed/torqued properly (or in the case of the lift, even it it was installed correctly).

If I'm understanding you correctly, at one point you had the lift and wheel spacers, without the 22's on there. Then you put the 22s on and got the vibes.

That would mean the rims are bent or the tires are not properly balanced.

I think i just puked in my mouth a little... But hey if you like it more power to ya. You might have warped rotors. You might not have noticed it when you had the stock wheels and tires on but the bigger wheels and tires will exaggerate the shaking. Do you feel it in the brake pedal too?

I dont think you want to say "anything i got" because then you would make yourself a liar. But in anycase is it like a pulse in the break pedal?

If its pulsing when pressing the brakes, Odds are, the lugs were not torqued propperly, on the spacers, or the wheels, and are causing the rotors to be warped. Take the wheels off, and the spacers, and re install to the correct torque. Tighten them in a start pattern.
