    I'm having issues after my lift was install. I had 4 of the 5100's and 2" blocks installed A week ago. The front shock are set up for 1 3/4" of lift. My local Toyota dealer lifted it for me. I haven't driven it much until last weekend. I am thinking something might be out of line. While driving down the road I can hear/feel a whine. When you take your foot off of the gas it goes away. Even though they said the did the front end alignment the tires are definitely toeing in. I am going to bring it back in this week, just looking for some ideas. Or if anyone else has had this problem.

    Thanks Paul

    Did they zip tie the brake line to the UCA by the front tires? Any way this could be hitting the tire or vibrating? It's a long shot, but at least I volunteered an idea...

    have the tsb and 5100s at .85.
    if your like me and notice everything about your truck, even the sounds, it may be just the the driveshafts/ tires are at a slightly different angle. so it may make a different sound. i really noticed it when i put on the bigger tires afterward. sound like im using more power to move the truck. i waited a few days to get the truck aligned after installing the 5100s, waited for the new tires. but it was much better after the alignment.

    Thanks for the input guys. I may just be being anal. I am going to bring it back anyway. The mechanics lifted it for me under the table. They were going to switch my brake pads to ceramic too,, but advance auto sold me the wrong ones. So i have to bring it in anyway. And they need to check the alignment to. I can noticably see the wheels toeing in. Can these trucks be aligned by places like firestone after they've been lifted. I bought A lifetime alignment right after i bought the truck. Would hate for it to go to waste.

    The gray Taco in the pic with mine is a brand new 2010 my brother just got 4 days ago. Sweet!!!!
