    i need to get a better angle finder but it looks to me like the slip yoke angle is 5 degrees down angle and the pinion is 10 degrees up angle

    its like after i lowerd the case the block is overcorrecting

    it vibed without the case lowered and it vibes with it

    except with the case lowered the grinding noise i was worried about is gone

    i dunno its liveable but its frustrating to know that it could be smoother

    im about to just take it to this shop i know the guy hes got a lifted k5 and another lifted truck to see wat he says

    dropping the case definately helped out the vibe but i get ti from about 0-50 with it being worse at about 35-40 while im crusing

    its totally none existent while coasting

    fill out your profile so people know whatcha got.(lift size/brand/etc.) it's alot easier to give advise when u know the stats of the truck are. BTW i know how u feel. i've been battling the driveline vibes ever since i lifted my truck. im about ready to go with a CV rear shaft. that may be what you need.

    That's what I finally had to do. Give Jess a call or email at H.A.D.
