Default Lifting problems with my New truck

Hello Guys! I bought a brand new Lifted truck 2013 Dodge Ram 2500 and I already have some problems(good thing is everything is covered by factory warranty). First of all, the left front tires is sticking out 1 or 2 inches that the left(track bar issue) and second there's a vibration and squeaking sound right under my floor when the truck is moving right around 20-35 miles and won't stop(maybe a drive shaft or pinion angle problem). Then, I just found out that fabtech haven't come out yet with 2013 suspension lift for my truck. I love my truck and I keep going to the shop that did the lift and told me to hangon because there's checking with fabtech. Man, I love my truck and I want to enjoy my truck but right now I can't enjoy it with all the problems. What do I need to do? Do I need to go to another shop to have 2nd opinion. What do think guys? Sorry the the long story but just to find some help. Thank you!

A second opinion never hurts. But since it is all under warrenty, keep at it with the shop that did it. They should work at it until the situation is solved.

best of luck.

Any pics in the mean time?? I think you'd be the first guy on here to purchase a pre-lifted 2013 2500! or any model for that matter. Congrats on the new truck

Hello Guys! I'm so sorry for not keeping in touch because I'm so busy with work. Anyway, my truck is on the shop since Memorial Day and they finally fixed one problem out of many. LOL They just put in a adjustable truck bar. Vibration still there especially during takeoff around 0-10 mph...really bad.... feeling it under the floor board. They put a transmission drop bracket on it but it's getting worse. I'll keep in touch guys on what's going on.

You mentioned a squeak under the floor any chance they didn't grease any bushings when they installed?

I would keep going to the original shop with the warranty. Especially if they put a kit on your truck that is not designed for it.
