    I guess I see I have the dreaded lift vibration around 30mph or so both on accel and decal. What really fixes it?

    I don't think there is a once all fix for it. Start with wheel balance then look into the drivetrain. You may need sims for the axle or a carrier bearing drop.

    Tried it last night and it does not go away in 4WD.but did notice when coasting down I put it
    in neutral and it goes away. I have 2 inch tapered blocks in the rear. Which way are they supposed to
    go. Directions did not say.

    I don’t know I don’t use blocks. I’d get an AAL or a new pack.

    Oops haha. Glad you fixed it. To bad the instructions didn’t tell you what direction the blocks go. I suggest an AAL next time.

    Generally your trying to reduce the U joint angle so they are installed so the axle is rotated up.
