    Title pretty much says it all. It's only apparent when accelerating from about 40-45 and then again from about 55-60. If I'm just cruising there's no vibe but if I'm accelerating it's very noticeable. Any ideas?

    Drive line angle!!!

    How many freaking issues are we going to have to sort through before y'all man up and fix your drive angles?

    But what's the difference between my angle before and now?

    Just a thought but you might have worn you joints and flange into a particular pattern take your DS off and rotate it 180 degrees.

    Nothing...its prob just the locker engaging under acceleration from torque. It's not always driveline angle Drewber, I know mine isn't..lol

    Nothing has changed, it just didn't matter before because there wasn't any slop. As Randy suggested, it could be worn U-Joints

    Why don't you get a one piece CV shaft and make sure your diff is pointed straight at your t-case. If it doesn't fix your issues, I'll pay for it, lol

    The only thing that leads me to believe it's not an angle problem is that it wasn't doing it before Kindra drove your truck.

    Yeah I don't think it's the driveline angle. It's not annoying at all it's just noticeable. Nothing I couldn't live with. And there's no noises either. The only time I've even noticed my locker is when it thumps when I hit the gas.

    And Randy, I'll try that this evening.

    My dad actually checked my U Joints while we were reinstalling the 3rd and driveshaft and said they were fine so I don't think that's it. But I'll double check again.

    Silverback I'm not always a dick. Just kidding, fuck off.

    I have a spare one piece you can try out. Just install.. drive around.. see if it goes away.

    Its nit so much that they would be worn out just that they have a wear pattern on them

    Alright cool, I'm going up to Aaron's in a bit to help him pull his front struts off so I'll rotate my DS while I'm up there.

    There's not a thing on my truck that doesn't rattle, squeak, or make some kind of terrible noise. But when a new one pops up I have to figure out what it is just so I know something's not fucked up. Especially after tearing the diff apart.

    with all the crap that has been happening with the lockers on here drew the only one with a arb is the only one that didnt have to spend more money on his... just saying maybe thats what the cool kids do...

    If you can find me an ARB completely installed from start to finish with the compressor and all plumbing done for the $125 it cost to buy and install my LockRight then I'll be one of the cool kids too.

    I went down the whole logical progression from thinking the auto locker was a problem, sinking money into ARB and regear, buying a new transfer case, then finally figuring out how to fix my "noise" which was driveline vibes.

    Compared to all the other shit I spent money on trying to fix the issue, the driveline was super cheap.
