    Obviously the reg cabs are notorious for making this noise when lifted, although after searching through different threads it seems only people with manual transmissions get them. Has anybody had/heard of someone having the grinding/vibration noises that has an automatic?

    Right now I have no rear lift and my billies at 1.75--no grinding, but Im considering doing an AAL and moving up to 2.5, but I've heard lots of stories of people grinding. Just cant decide about the cost/benefit haha
