    So I know I need an alignment but I’m getting a vibration from 20-35mph anyone have a clue why this is? Lol I installed Bilstein 5100s set at 2.5, taco lean spacer, diff drop and a 2” aal. Thanks in advance

    I’d get that alignment and tell them to check the balance on your tires and see what happens after that.

    Put it in 4wd and see if the vibration goes away. If it does it’s the needle bearing and you’ll want to do the ECGS bushing fix.

    Most likely not a tire balance issue unless u had vibration before lift.

    Sometimes the diff drop will cause a vibration. It is suggested that you don't use it off the bat.

    If it’s not a diff drop or the balance of your wheels it’s probably your rotors. I was getting a shake like yours and had to put new rotors and pads

    My tires and wheels will be in Thursday so the alignment will follow that hopefully that day or Friday. Also I noticed the bushing in my cv on the drivers side was sloppy even before the lift. Is that the needle bearing?

    Normally a little loose.
