    i installed the lift kit at my shop at the family farm. drove it home brakes werent quite tight enough, other than that it ran great. blead the brakes again now theyre fine. but now its vibrating my fillings out of my teeth. it stops when i let off the gas and coast. could this be u-joints? any constructive comments greatly appreciated.

    no a pro, but if someone else will chime in. but i think it might be because of your driveshaft angle. how much lift did you put on?
