Default shudder wobble after leveling kit install

well after all my waiting for parts and stuff from HELL BENT STEEL, after my install of 2.5 inch spacer, front alignment and road test, i now have the shudder or wobble or vibration in 4HI. Its prominent when taking off from a stop for the most part and during heavy acceleration. i installed the 2.5 leveling kit from HBS because i had a little over a 3 inch difference from front to back on my truck that has 7k miles. but since i didnt give it enough thought, and my lack of more detailed research i missed the fact that theres an 1/8 inch plate that has to be stacked under the spacer if you have a truck built after 2008. excluding the spacer will damage the strut bushing on top of the strut. adding this stack should be taking in consideration to the overall measurement. since theres only 1/8 inch difference between the 2.5 inch spacer and 2.0 inch the additon of the 1/8 inch spacer will yield a considerable difference in added height. HELL BENT STEEL is sending me exhange 2.0 inch spacer to see if the wobble will go away. note my half shafts are angled downward but not overall too steap to cause issues. if the vibration exist after the install of 2.0 inch spacer then i will remove them and write a code to develope a 1/4 inch spacer on the mill at work.

I read somewhere that if you get the hell vib dodge is saying to replace you half shaft with their hi performance off road ones.
