Default Has anyone else had problems with the rear driveshaft shuttering after rcx 6" lift on 2012 ram1500

I recently had a 6" lift installed on my 2012 ram 1500 . from day one i have had a shutter in my drive line fr 0-20 km/hr . its appears to be getting worse since the addition of 37" tires . i have contacted rough country and they sent me out a 2nd set of front differential drop brackets which lowered the angle on the front driveshaft and on my cv shafts which are almost %100 straight . , shop installed them and it never helped with my issue . Since then the shop basically tells me there is nothing they can do to help me out and this is the first case they had with an issue like mine . So iam left with a brand new truck that feels like its going to shake its self apart at low speeds . I need to get this resolved . i have had several people look at this for me and they tell me its the rear drive shaft . the shaft was removed and all u joints were checked and they are perfect since the truck only has 9xxx kms , and with only 2000kms on the lift . wondering if anyone out there with a 09-13 ram 1500 has had a similar issue involving the rear driveshaft with the 6" rcx kit ?

I had this issue for 40k miles...all I can tell you is pull that lift off or get rid of the truck like I did.

I replaced the entire rear lift 3 or 4 times even with Upgraded aftermarket crap, swapped tires 3 times and rims twice...never helped my issue.

To me it looks like your yoke going into your transfer case is bent? Maybe it's an illusion, but here's a pic of mine and it looks straight compared to yours.
