    this was noticable after i got my truck lifted (spacers, aal, diff drop). i can feel it most under accleration and breaking. is this something thats normal from the lift? or anybody else hear or know about this problem?

    IMHO you are going to get some vibration whenever you install a lift because it changes the drive line geometry from what the truck was originally designed for.
    Of course, their is what I consider a acceptable amount of vibration and you want to get it to a minimum as it will be harder on your bearings,u joints, etc.

    How much lift did you lift it?

    Congrats. You are the new recipient of front diff bearing replacement therapy. Throw your truck in 4x4 on a straight stretch and see if the vib goes away. If it does, your (Mostly likely drivers side) front diff bearing is toast and needs replacing.
