Vibrations in the steering

Between 25-35/40 in getting a vibration in the steering wheel as if I'm driving over a rumble strip at slow speeds. I only really feel it in the steering wheel, and it only happens when I'm on the throttle.

The vibration is likely from improper (excessive) angles at the u-joints on the driveshafts caused by your 4" suspension lift. Was a SYE installed? What was done to correct the steeper driveshaft angles caused by the suspension lift?

Can you post good sharp well-lit photos of the front and rear driveshafts, especially showing the axles and their connections/angular-relationships to the driveshafts?

interesting.. I might have noticed the same thing in my wheel.

I think its a balance issue as those are always speed related..
