    when i bought my 79 k5 it was stock as a rock. the day after i put a procomp 6" kit and 38's. I lengthened the rear driveline and put in spicers. 38's are sorta big for 6" so i shackle flipped it and got 10" superlift front springs. since then I noticed that when im on the throttle, it vibrates, when i let off it doesnt. I know its the drive line but i was just wondering if this is usual on a rig w/ 10" of lift. im just hoping that my pretty new spicer doesnt decide to blow up on me. thanks

    Yes, its common to get drive shaft vibrations, when lifting a truck as high as yours, if you do not correct your driveline angles. Your driveline angles are probably too much.

    with that much lift, you will want to go with a cv.
