2" Drop with no wedge. Vibration from 60mph and upwards. Vibration is a lot worst when vehicle is loaded. Suggestions???

I bet it has something to do with your rear pinion angle being off.

In this particular situation, do I have to angle the pinion up, or down? Or is it different in every case?

Turdle or Techieman33 would have a better chance helping you than I would. I noticed in another thread you have new 20" wheels. Did the vibration exist before the wheels or after?

The vibration always existed, although at different intensities depending on which blocks I was u

The vibration always existed, although at different intensities depending on which blocks I was using at the time. So far the setup that has worked best is 2" angled blocks with the smaller wedge facing the rear of the vehicle. I tell ya, my truck is weird...:confused:

You are not the only one with this issue. I am still going through it also. Not so weird.
