Vibration!
 
So I was just talking to my mechanic(Dealer) because I want to lift the new truck I ordered. The truck i have now has a Ready-Lift SST kit in and I have a slight vibration when in 4X4 at low speed. I thought by going to a true 4" lift I would get away from this vibration but he is saying no. He has apparently installed a number of the Rough Country lifts (says they are a nice kit) and you still get the vibration and you have to cut the frame for the install(not a problem he says). I'm looking for feed back from the forum on this issue to help me make up my mind. I just want my 35" tires on the new truck.

Common issue, the 4x4 vibration. I have bilsteins maxed and get a very slight one on flat surface in 4x4. But I'm rarely on a flat surface in 4x4 (except for hard packed snow in the winter) so I don't worry about it. And it's very subtle.

Every truck is going to react different to each of these kits. It's a gamble for sure. But plenty of guys are running kits (level or lift) and don't have issues, and if they do it's hardly noticeable unless you know to look for it.

I read one person say it's from the angles of the cv that it vibrates in 4x4 at low speeds

If you take out the level kit and put a 4" suspension lift you shouldn't have any vibrations. I have a 4 lift, I didn't have any vib until I installed bilsteins.

What brand lift did you put in and did you do it yourself?
