    drivetrain vibration (it\'s not the tires)

    with a four" suspension lift, my front end (powered by an np203) vibrates like a mofo at highway speeds (50-75 mph). i dont wanna tear the t-case apart to install a parttime kit, if i installed manual locking hubs would that reduce vibes? or could the whole problem be the stock driveshaft being too short? as of right now my front drive shaft sits on my garage floor, my t-case in hi-locked position so i can get around town without getting too bad a headache. but whats the point of having a 4x4 if ya cant actually get power to all four wheels? i need to reconnect my front shaft soon, but before i do that i gotta eliminate that vibration. pleez help me my brothers!!1

    well why not go to the forum for your year truck and post? not trying to be a jerk here but this forum is for questions pertaining specifically to ORD and their products and you wont get much technical help here...just a thought though, is the driveshaft out of balance? maybe a bearing that the front output rides on taking a crap?

    There's a good chance it's a bad slip joint on the shaft.
