Default Bilstein 5100 leveling kit causing vibration?

Hay guys and gals I just had some 5100 installed on my 2007 1500 front and rear and adjusted all the way up.They made my truck look BA but now I have a vibration at speeds that is mostly felt in the pedals and the steering wheel feels realy light on the highway. In 4x4 I cant turn the wheel half way to the left or right and it binds up bad enough to stop the truck at driveway speeds.

Has anybody else noticed this . I dont know if it is the leveling 5100's making the axles bind up or if it is the alignment. I would hate to spend the money on another alignment and it not fix the problem and then have to lower them and have it aligned again. Any help would be appreciated.

You need to lower the shocks down to 2.1 setting i would think. Your cv's are in too much of a bind.

I have the 5100 front level on my '07 1500 4X4. I have no vibrations at all. I'm also at the highest setting on the shocks.

I guess I will have to try lowering them down. Does anybody know if I can do it without taking the strut all the way out. like maybe take the wheel off and use a spring compresser.
