    I installed an AAL from toytec a few weeks ago only to have the typical 5mph shudder. So after dealing with it for a few weeks and about 700 miles i decided to install the drive shaft carrier bearing drop kit I ordered at the same time as the AAL.

    Annndddddd...... it worked!! the shudder is about 90% gone which is good enough for me. Install was really easy even though i was lazy and used my impact gun to remove the old bolts.

    Next up.... Lift the front cuz it looks kinda goofy now with only the rear lifted

    getting there....
    moved the thread for you.


    glad the drop worked for you. i made spacers for mine..1/4inch, and it helped alot with some of the driveline vibes i was having. i'll get a tom woods one piece sometime down the road, but for now, the spacers work just fine.

    to get rid of that last 10%, you can isntall axle shims. Very easy to do, would have been even easier to install them when you did the AALs, but still an easy task and makes the shudder non-existent.
