I am told it's cause the front is lifted too high and putting a bad angle on the CV's..
Was just curious if anyone else has had the same issue?
P.S. think i found my issue finally.. i never bothered to measure my ride height before.. because.. you put it on and it works rigtht? and winter.. i'm sitting 3/4" higher on the passenger side than the drivers.. so looks like i might have got some bad parts. Will be ordering the bilstein to get it fixed up..
Sorry to hear about the poor outcome. I heard another person also saying they had vibrations from this lift (unless it was you) but they said sfter getting an alignment the vibrations went away. It would be good to know exactly how much lift you got. There have probably been thousands of people who are running the RRO 2.5" lift and I don't think I've heard any reports of vibration from them. They should be changing the CV angles more than you. Also many of them run bilstein 5100s with them which gives them about 3" total lift in front and there seems to be very little issues reported. I have slightly over 2" lift in front and 1.25" to 1.5" in back and I have no issues what so ever. You could always go back to OE or bilstein 5100s and sell your kit on ebay. Hope you get it figured out.
