Default Bad vibrating!

Alright so I got a hell bent steel leveling kit put on and some 34'' rocky mountains. I have had a alignment and balance and rotate done since then. but at high was speeding im getting pretty bad vibrating? Im stumped on what it is.

their have been a few cases where levelling kit has resulted in vibrations, some have what they call a "death Wobble" so it coule be a result of your levelling kit

Is it bad in 4x4?

also could just be a result of your tires but those arnt to aggressive of a tread if i recall. so might just be the levelling kit have to get used to or settle in.

i know on my truck i put the 2.5 level and 34 inch duratracs. and i got plenty of wobble wasnt to bad at start. but now with the tires worn a little uneven its brutal

ya lots of people go with the bilstiens and i havent heard anything but good about them, everyone seems to be very satisfied with them, can set them to max a 2.8 inch of lift.then settle so same as 2.5 level maybe little more

i myself am thinking of switching to the bilstiens. but going to wait till i get some new tires to see if majority of the wobble is being cause by the tires i know they wear uneven up front on passenger side for some reason.

Well the tires are brand new so there's no way it can be the tires! It has to be the leveling kit

some tires can come bad, it would be a freak thing but it's the truth. could
be your truck isn't taking the level so well

i would try to get a qucik wheel rotation i know their brand new but like gone fishin said. it is possible slim chance but could happen that a tire came from factory a little off. so try rotating them see if changes the vibrtions. if no better, then pronbably your truck not likeing the level and best bet would be to try bilstiens

well I got the tires balanced and rotated another time and it helped a little bit, but there is still some shaking there, so im guessing its the levelers.
