    I am getting courious of what could cause my vibration on my truck after the lift... I put the bilstein 5100 set all the way up and got about around 2.5" of lift. I've read many threads about this issue, it could be the center carrier bearing or it could be the u joints... I tried dropping the center carrier bearing and it didn't do much... I get the vibration from 25-40mph, I'm not sure if I didnt drop it enough or is there any thing else to try?

    did you do AAL in the rear? if you left the rear stock carrier bearing drop is pointless and could cause more vibrations

    Yes I did raise the rear with an add a leaf, I'm just wondering how people have a lift that is taller and have no problems. Its a 2" add a leaf.

    Okay, I honestly kinda forgot I started that thread, oops! Well it feels like its coming from the rear... I use to get it from a dead stop till about 10mph, but it stopped that when I put the washers in.

    haha its cool no worries. so it does sound like its being caused by your driveshaft then. you should try axle shims. and your positive it isnt your tires being unbalanced?

    Yea I'm positive, it shakes like your driving on wash boards. But with both tires.

    Okay so I dropped the carrier bearing down to about an inch, it didnt do much all, what is the best way to check if its the front or the rear?

    Well you could put it in 4wd then pull the driveshaft making your truck front wheel drive haha. Try reading up on axle shims, i have heard of a few cases that the CB drop didnt work and axle shims did.

    I took my truck to inland truck parts today, the deal with drivelines and other mechanical aspects... The told me my driveline needs to be a little longer so I could add some length to it or get a 1 piece driveline... Does this sound like something I may need on a 2.5" lift?

    Are you sure it isn't the front? Try switching into 4hi and see if the vibes go away.

    people dont lift and have no vibes, we live with it because there is nothing wrong. i bought a beefed taco cb drop, and it cured my vibes. put like 2 or 3 washers between your cb and mount and see how it does. also, make sure your leafs are torqued to 90 ft lbs.

    if youre still not happy, you need a 1 piece DS.

    I understand that there may be alittle vibe but this is pretty bad, by lowering the cb the 0-10 vibe has Gina away

    U bolts. Toyota only states to set them to like 37ft lbs but we have figured out that that is a typo. And should be 73, but be safe and go with 90.

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    The vibe is from the change in driveshaft angle. The ujoints must rotate faster the higher you lift it.
    3-4 degree shims for the rear axle, and a 1 peice driveshaft should cure it. Start with shims.
