Re: Front drive shaft VIBES

You can p/u a angle finder at Harborfreight for 5$. A set of adj uppers or lowers would do the trick. Are you running RE arms now?

"re3.5sf"

I assume that means the RE SuperFlex 3.5" lift kit which replaces the lower control arms to correct for this.

The frame side of the lower control arms. It's why those 2 studs are part of the lower control arm mount.

I had a SF kit in the beginning, it did nothing to change the angles. I had worse problems(LpD30), not only vibrations but the u-joints would bind when fully dropped out!
