When yall take off with a heavy load do yall get any driveline vibrations on take off. Once I get rolling it stops. If I have the programer turnd up it bucks at higher speeds but I had the programer on 1 when towing. Never had a vibration on take off before.
This is what I was towing.

Driveline angle and axle wrap. My 450 will do it a little if I take off too hard while I am loaded. I am going to add bars sooner or later.

Ford has a TSB on this. Says it's the driveline angle while towing and they recommend shims depending on wheelbase.


TSB
09-20-5
SHUDDER OR VIBRATION ON ACCELERATION - ESPECIALLY WHEN LOADED
Publication Date: September 29, 2009

FORD:
2008-2010 F-250, F-350
This article supersedes TSB 9-4-9 to update the vehicle model years.

ISSUE:

Some 2008-2010 F-Super Duty 250/350 vehicles with single rear wheels (SRW) and F-350 dual rear wheel (DRW) may exhibit an excessive drive-away shudder or vibration under moderate to heavy acceleration from a stop, especially when heavily loaded. This may be due to driveline angle. The shudder or vibration may be more evident while towing a trailer or if vehicle is overloaded.

Thanks, does that mean my dealer will fix it? I all ready have a carier bareing drop that came with the leveling kit on it. Maybe I need a bigger drop?

Mine does it but usually when taking a corner while taking off, I figured it was something to do with the limited slip. I was looking into bars too anyway hopefully that helps!
