    Hi all,
    I installed my lift a little over a week ago & I'm having a slight vibration at around 20-30mph approx. It is not very bothersome or anything but just wanted to make sure it is not damaging anything being there. I do not go offroad much as I have a Pre-runner & just wanted more height & the look mainly. The lift consisted of Bilstein 5100's set to 2.5" in the front, and OME rear shocks with a 2" AAL in the back. Otherwise, the truck rides great & no problems. I do plan to get aftermarket UCA's in the future but other then that am happy with the lift in general. Thanks for any advice or tips.

    Did you get an alignment after the lift?

    Supercharger, OME lift w/ LR UCAs, running boards, toolbox, extinguisher mount, skidplate, N-Fab light bar, 40" R.I. LED bar, WO seat covers, TRD intake, Weathertech mats and visors, stubby antenna, hood struts, LED interior lighting, Hella Supertones, and other stuff I'm forgetting.
    My new lift has the same vibes (20-30 mph, and also slightly when starting from a stop).
    Mine is OME w/o spacers and Dakar leaf packs.
    I'm sure it's just driveline vibes, common with lifts on these Tacos. I ordered a BeefedTaco thingy to try to cure it, and a degree measuring tool to troubleshoot further if that doesn't clear it up.

    Yeah, it's not to bad at all but its definitely noticeable so Im just wanting to make sure it won't hurt anything long term. I definitely love the lift & the new tires, and its totally worth the small vibes. I'll keep monitoring it to make sure it don't get worse. I don't notice anything at higher speeds & the ride is great, just as good as stock if not a bit better even set at 2.5" in the front.
