does your truck have a two piece drive shaft, how are the angles on them, maybe theres a shim missing on the carrier bearing, if they are off it can really trash u joints

yes it does have a two piece. . . i only have a problem with the one that connects to the rear end. . . i had the angles checked when i put the lift in and they said it was good to go. . . i have the biggest problems when i pull a trailer or go on really long road trips.

You could have a bad case of axle wrap. How much lift do you have and is it by springs or blocks?

jlawles2's Sig:2004.5 LLY K2500 Banks Super Scoop to the Exhaust tip. EGR delete plate with Kennedy finger stick. ISSPRO Performax gauges.MBRP Down pipe and stainless front pipe installed. BD Exhaust manifold. AFE Bladerunner, and have prothane bushings on arrived but not installed. Russell Stainless Steel brake lines and PPE Centrifugal oil filter. One day when I get enough money, I will put in the Suncoast with 6 speed conversion.
