    Hey guys,
    new member here, first post

    First off, I am about to take the dive and throw on a set of 5100's and put an AAL in the back. I'm gonna go for maximum lift and set them at 2.5. However, I have read a lot about this vibration and shuddering that people are getting and it has really made me second guess whether I should lift or not. Is there any way I can tell if I will get these problems before I lift? Also, I have heard that I should do a diff drop but I have also heard that it just makes the vibrations worse. So whats the deal? Please throw any and all advice my way. Also, if there is anything you wish that you were told before you installed a lift please feel free to tell it to me!
    Thanks guys!

    The shudders and vibrations are a hit or miss deal. Some folks have it and some folks don't.

    Just know that when you start to alter any part of your suspension, you will be changing other parts as well. So lifting isn't very hard to do.
    Lifting it correctly and resolving any issue that may arise?? That is the part that will take commitment.
