My friend's shop did the installation. He is very meticulous, but you never know. I can take a wrench to it and check it myself.

I will check the toe-in tomorrow with a tape measure.

Thanks!

New Lift ='s Vibrations

2" BDS Spring lift and BINGO.....some wiggle and some vibrations. We dropped the T-Case about a 1/4" and I don't think I am getting any vibrations from the drive shaft. Seems to be either the alignment or tire balance issues.

Under 50 mph....does not seem to have any issues. But from 50 to 60 mph, gets a little squirely. Wants to track a little back and forth, the steering wheel wiggles back and forth a bit, and then smooths out over 60.

Never had noticed before the lift....not sure if a lift would make a wheel balance issue more noticeable. Have not had it aligned yet either.

So, gonna get it aligned and balanced tomorrow.
