    I put a 3" tough country lift on my 2011 reg cab 4x4
    after i noticed that it made my rear drive shaft vibrate
    the drive shaft on the reg. cab is very short and unlike the 4 doors and ex. cabs, it has no carrier barring. I had a new drive shaft fabricated w/ a cv. it helped but didnt eliminate the problem. anyone else have this problem? any suggestions?:confused:
    also considering a steeper shim- already have a 2.5 degree

    I seem to be having the same problem. I have a regular cab with a 3 inch tough country lift. I have a 3 degree shims in the rear. I get my vibration when im driving over 55 mph and i push in the clutch or let off the gas pedal. Is this the same problem your having?

    Try a slighter larger shim.

    A CV style driveshaft will have a different 'angle' than a non-CV. Read this information and it might help you out.
