    I have recently added a 6 inch suspension lift to my 2005 Tacoma, I now have a shimmer or vibration between 5 mph ad 10 mph after that it does not exist I was told that the tom woods one piece drive shaft would eliminate this problem but I was told today that it could eliminate that problem but then cause a new vibration on the upper end as like causing a vibration around 65-70 mph is this true and does anyone have any other solutions to this all help would greatly be appreciated

    Find a good driveline shop in your area, that can build you a custom DS. That way if it does cause other issues, they are right there to resolve it!:headbang:

    i have a similar problem, from what i understand the yoke angles need to be within 1.5 degrees of each other, so find a shop that has the tool to measure the two angles and adjust your rear axle shim accordingly. i had a driveshaft fabricated with a CV joint comin out of the ex. housing. it helped but the vibration is still there. i have a 2.5 degree shim in there now, so now im goin steeper. im doin it tomorrow, ill let you guys know.

    question for you is what taco do you have- reg, ex, or 4door
    if it has a carrier bearing i have heard that all you need is a 1/4" spacer between the crossmember and the bearing mount- pretty simple job
