View Full Version : Vibration

07-15-2008, 07:52 AM
I recently took out a 3inch lift to put in a 6" and install 35's tires... but now I seem to have vibration. Has anyone else had this issue?

could be your slipjoint, or your pinion angle could be off. Did you install tapered rear blocks, or did you do a suspension lift?

it is a skyjacker suspension lift.

Are you tires balanced ?

it is a skyjacker suspension lift.

What I was asking was did you lift the rear with tapered blocks or lift springs?

Probably unbalanced tires..

What type of truck?

tire balance is off

if u just put on ther 35s without doign anything your tirees are outa wack

if u still got vibration
'check diff angle and then

slip joint for extra play

if none of that does anything

look for a separated tire or wheelbearing

i love the vibration, in between my legs.........not in my truck! lOl [1c]

yeah i balanced the tires after I installed them. I think they are okay!
lift springs were used, and it is a 2006 dodge ram 1500.

I have day off tomorrow to drink a few and get under my beast. I will check the diffangle and slipjoint. After that, i will be back here askin 4 more help...

Could it be the CV's? OR would that not cause vibration?

What type of tires are they? bias ply's don't balance that well and are pretty rough as it is.. maybe you should try slapping on your old tires for a spin around the block eh?

07-15-2008, 07:38 PM
that is what i was thinkin. I'll switch to my old tires an see if it helps first before I start in with the other checks....

took the tires off today and put on my old 33's. the vibration has stopped. or it had when i took it out for a quick spin. it was either the tires or the balancing was CRAP...
i will put the 35's back on the weekend and see if it returns.

thanks for the help.[cheers]

Could be u-joint or poor drive shaft angle..

What speeds dose the vibesa happen at and is it in the steering wheel or the seat...
Is the rear drive shaft a one piece or a 2 piece???

I know so many questions...
Where did you get the tires ballanced and what type of tires are they???
I put Trxus MT on my Ex and they don't ballance worth shiot I'm going to have to bag them... (sand bags internal it's a big rig thing)
Cheers and welcome to the site (better late than never)[cheers]

Nah drinkin' and drivin's for sucka's. Smok'em peace pipe![stoned]

if your gonna try to see if it is the tires or not i would think you should be trying with a diffrent set of 35's instead of going down to a 33 which works. as this will tell you if it is tires or mechanical eg pinion angle etc. as all that will change with the 2 inch diffrence in tire size.

thx for all the suggestions. I got it sorted when i put the 35s back on an had them alligned properly. crappy place i got the orignal tires from musta been sleepin when they did the first allignment.

there is no benifit to the vibration if i drink tooooo much..numbs the sences! lol
