when I went 2" lower than stock on the rear the u-joints were out of phase and a vibration/rumble at over 60mph, anyone feel it? Im wondering if only V8s have the anti-wrap whatever upper control arms bolted to the rear axle housing which might alter the angle, if so it might have to be lenghtened/shortened with/without angled leaf to axle shims to correct for the difference from the trans output shaft to the pinion angle


... if the pinion was about a degree or two on a different plane than the output shaft you will have a horrible vibration:confused:

Just checking in on this to see how you ever corrected the pinion angle. I recently installed a 2" block on my 96 limited (Air suspension removed) and the driveline is out of phase. Any input would help a ton. Thank you!
