    I just installed 5100's on the front of my 07 4x4 access cab base model yesterday. Before the install I measured all my fender heights and the rear was sitting about 2 in above the front. Therefore I set the billies at 1.75. After I was done and driving I noticed that starting at about 20 mph on up I get a roaring noise from the front.... almost sounds like I have boggers on the front of the truck. Anyone have any ideas?
    Btw The truck now sits pretty much level and I am pretty sure I dont have the tsb rear or at least from what I know (just bought the truck 2 weeks ago) I checked the cv angles and they look alright and the rear drive shaft looks fine.... the only thing I notice is that my tires are cambered significantly and the tires are pretty much shot. I am getting them replaced and aligned tom. but I didnt know If anyone had had any similar things happen.

    I just tested it in 4wd.... It seems as if it less apparent even though it is really faint to begin with .... I think I may go take the 5100's off and back them down to .85 and see if makes the noise go away with less of a cv angle... it just blows that I didnt have this problem yesterday before the lift and now i sure do
    Figures 3 weeks into owning the truck I already have conflicting issues

    Update: I got the new 265/75/16 cooper at3's on and alignment/balancing done and it helped some but not much. The 1.75 setting ended up sitting me at a little over 2 inches ?? so to try and solve my vibes im going to try and take it down to .85 tom

    Set at .85 and ended up just over an inch of lift..... front sits 1 in lower than rear and now the only sound I hear are my new tires and no more excessive vibrations
