Shake after lift and tires
Finally got around to putting a Zone 4 inch lift onto my TJ and some 33s. Got all the extras that come with the kit, a dropped pitman arm and used the transfer case drop for now. Couldn't be happier with how it handles and feels on the road.
However, I have noticed that upon acceleration from a dead stop, there is a rattling sound for the first second of takeoff and a bit of a shake. I do have a vibration at lower speeds, which seems to go away on the highway. My mechanic buddy thinks it may be a bad U-joint, but I didn't hear it before the lift and tires. I have 3.73 gears at the moment and an automatic tranny.
Have also noticed some creaking when turning and accelerating. Same mechanic buddy thought that could be my limited slip diff kicking in, but again, never heard this before. Jeep has been aligned. Any ideas?
