after alighnment maybe... drove up/down my road and it had a funny shake/noise on front end...could this be caused by improper toe in? i kno nothing about alignment but hope it will fix the noise and loose feeling. i will put it back in air 2mro and check tightness on everything(coulda missed something).....any more ideas?

Could be alignment im sure everything got tweaked because of lift. Im sure lift will cause truck to have different feel. Could be as simple as cold tires. My swampers feel like they are square until they warm up

Just get an alignment as soon as you get a chance. After you drive a few days check to make sure everything is still tightened. You shouldn't have any cv issues with only 2" of lift, esp. at ride height (full droop or stuff would be max cv angle). You would be able to tell if they were binding.

I drove it just to the alignment shop. I did not notice much, but it is only a mile from my house. I like the tires, but go 12.50 when you buy tires.
