got a little bit of what feels like driveline vibration after I did my 2/4 drop - whats the best/easiest way to fix this? figuring this is cause for a carrier bearing or pinion shims - but which? thanks guys
Shims install between the leaf pack and the axle saddles. The shim alters pinion angle by adjusting the differential position.
The carrier spacers install on a crossmember where the joint in the 2 piece driveshaft is. The carrier spacer alters pinion by raising the driveshaft and the joint. These only can be used on trucks with 2 piece driveshafts.
Both are easy installs for anyone who's done any suspension work.....the spacer is just a few bolts. The shims are a little more work but still easy.
i think I may just order the DJM carrier bearing kit and get it over with - dont even both with the shims - hopefully I'll be able to figure it out and get it fixed - did the 2/4 by myself so I hope I can figure it out
