    Anyone running a 6\" lift with no major vibes?

    I know I need to get longer driveshafts but I just cant shell out the cash on CV. So I would like to get some input from anyone with a 6" lift and no CV. Is there a lot of bad vibes? I plan on lowering the tcase with the stock spacers to help.

    Any info is greatly appreciated.

    I have a 6 in and 38s also, and I havent noticed any vibes worth mentioning. Is it the tires or the shaft? I have no clue. It seems worse at lower speeds (under 30 MPH) so I think the bit I have is in the tires. My case is dropped 1in. BTW.

    I have 6'' lift with no more noticeable vibes and no c/v. I lowered the T-case 1'' and the rearend is ''shimmed'' up towards the T-case because of the shackle flip. The only vibes I get now are from my severely chunked and out of balance tires (need to trim a lot!) I will be getting a c/v before Blazer Bash so I can raise my T-case back up.

    I am with the others.. 6" lift no major vibes! And I didn't lower the t-case.
    However I do need to replace the front u-joint on the rear shaft about once a year.
