    Aloha all!

    Back again with a nonsense topic! Current build: OEM King Suspension on all 4 corners, OME Heavy Duty Leaf Pack, stock UCA's, 265/70/17 Wildpeaks.

    Front driver hub to fender - 22.25"
    Front passanger hub to fender -22.5"
    Driver rear hub to fender - 24.25"
    Passanger rear hub to fender -24.75"

    Before these measurements I raised the front to about 23 - 23.5" of lift, had slight vibes from 20 - 30mph and felt that it was too much preload so I lowered them back down to these measurements. Vibes seem a LITTLE better now after lowering front but slightly still there. Almost feel like it is coming from the rear. Too much rake?

    The before alignment was with the 23" of lift up front and the current alignment is with the lowered measurements. Thoughts? Thank you all.20181221_125953.jpg

    Subbed to hear more about the alignment numbers.

    I doubt its too much rake. Do you have any shims or the carrier barring drop kit? I have the OME HD (EL096R) and I'm sitting at 24" in the rear. I had low speed vibs that were corrected by 3* shims on the leafs. Seems to be a pretty common problem.

    Probably the pinion angle...
    Aren't OEM Kings a little short for an OME HD leafpack?

    All they did is adjust your toe, and straighten your steering wheel.

    @splitbolt that's what I was thinking. And yes, they are a bit short. Waiting on the new ones. Thank you.

    The vibes are probably the ECGS bearing thing. The alignment just looks like toe was out after you lowered it. This is expected anytime you change the height. They should have been able to get you a similar alignment at the higher height as well.
