Was it a one piece or a two piece?


I run a custom rear driveshaft on my truck, it's a 2 piece still with a CV after the carrier bearing and I run a tapered block to get the proper pinion angle for zero vibs at any speed. I got it built by Jesse at High Angle Drivelines in CA.

did you shim your carrier? if not thats probaly it. i believe the recommended shim is 1/4" per every inch of lift. i would recommend shimming it 2" and then checking the angle visually, then driving it, you may need to remove some or add some. its reall a basic job, just go to 4 wheel parts and get the shims. maybe get a 1" shim and the rest 1/4" shims.
