hi,


i was just wondering if anybody knew what could possibly cause a slight vibration in the front end of the truck after you lift it. Is this normal :confused: ? Could it be the tires or an internal issue within the front end suspension system. Right now i'm just running stock 265/70/16 tires on it and i have a 3 in. spacers on the front. Can anybody help?

Have you had an alignment yet? You would most likely need one after the lift; and that could cause the vibration. If you're going to be upgrading tires soon, you could hold off till they are installed; otherwise id get an alignment asap.

Seems some taco's are more sensitive to this than others, but the trucks with ADD are known to vibrate when lifted over 2-1/2 inches. Not all do it, and some vibrate pretty steadily. It is due to the shafts not disconnecting, and spinning constantly. One of the reasons guys switch to manual hubs. I am at 2-3/4. No vibes. At 3" solid, I sart to buzz on the highway. I don't know how you take out a little from a spacer... machine shop, or bandsaw would be my guesses.

Not sure if your 4wd or not but if so Id check the front driveshaft. Same thing happened to me when I built my rockcrawler. No problems before lifted but after I had a vibration. Took out the driveshaft to check ujoints and they were all pretty toasted. Just an idea.
