    looking for some sugestions here. I have a nasty vibration at just about every speed.

    I took an angle finder and placed it on the underside of the t-case tail shaft, the underside of the driveline and the underside of the pinion. and the measurements i got were:

    T-CASE 3.5 degrees

    DRIVESHAFT 18.5 degrees

    Pinion 18.5 degrees


    Obvisously this isn't good. but I'm not sure where to start in making corrections.


    I have a 208, with a 14bltff. lifted with a shackle flip and a 4 inch tapered block. Up front I have 6inch leaf with zero rate.

    I tried to reverse the block and point the pinion down, for less angle and that didn't work at all, the u-joint was binding big time..

    So like i said I'm looking for sugestions as to what to do, and where to begin. it vibrates hard under any acceleration, I only took it up to about 15mph, was afraid to go any faster. and at 15mph the vibrations were not as fierce but definatly not good.

    Opps forgot to add that.

    I have dropped the T-case an inch.

    And I was just outside looking at it, and if I lower my pinion angle at all, then that will increase my drivshaft angle..or am I not thinking about this properally?
