    you could even make your own driveshaft spacer. just get some material thats however thick you want, drill a hole and get a longer bolt. i used the extra bolts from when i took off my sway bar...theres a kinda sorta diy here if you search

    I have tried all these fixes for this same issue! carrier drop diff drop rear axle shims. NONE OF IT HELPED!! Is their anyone running front billies @ 85 with rear tsb and not having vibes ? I installed rancho quick lift W tsb truck is level front shocks lifted front 2 inchs fighting vibes ever since !! . Dealer said only thing that will fix it is returning to stock ride hieght. Hoping billies @85 would be close enough

    Well it may also be that you bent an axle if you ever hit a curb or went over a bad pothole. Or it may be that one of your rims is bent or may also be your tires need to be rebalanced. Those are the only things I can think of that may be giving you vibrations.
