I have a very mild vibration while in 4x4 between 10-15mph. Have you already installed the leveling kit or just wondering?

A few members have posted that a simple alignment will fix the vibration issue.

^ Following suit with the alignment answers here. Your truck most likely needs one. I'm taking my 02 in to get leveled tomorrow and he told me I should do an alignment after

With a 2" levell it is a lesser risk but the chance is still there. Everyone of these trucks respond differently so it makes it really hit or miss. The guys with 2.5-2.8" leveling kits sometimes report a small gutter in 4x4 but it usually disappears after 10-15mph

I installed the Bilstein 5100's on the front with 2" lift and had the alignment done a couple of days later. I now have put on at least 2500 km and NO problems at all. This is how the truck should have come from the factory!!
