    Hello everyone,
    I just installed a Rough Country 3" lift on my daughters 4runner I now have a bad vibration when I hit 65 the goes away around 77-80. I really cant tell where it is, seem the whole truck vibrates but not in the steering wheel or pedals. The only thing I can think of is the drive shaft angle was changed due to the lift and maybe its a bad u-joint.

    Any thoughts any input appreciated
    Thank you
    Otto

    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    I was going to say that or check the U-Joints. Those are the most common issues after a lift in them.

    The front IFS differential, sometimes you have to drop it down a bit to prevent binding.

    I was going to suggest an alignment also, but looks like it got squared away
