I put on a 2 inch lift kit around 2 years ago from Rough Country, ever since I put it on the front shakes when I accelerate quicker than usual (usually in 2 or 3rd gear).

Does anyone know how to solve the shake?

I've tried alignment, no cigar.

I replaced both front bearings (and it got a little better).

Boots look fine, CV joints look fine. No leaking anywhere.

I'm wondering if I should remove the lift kit to see what's up.
My usual mechanic is stumped, I showed him the shaking and he was like, I don't know what that is LOL.

Also, when I accelerate, there is a little tik tik tik sound from the front.

Others have had problems with the RC lift. The problem apparently comes from too tall of front spacer causing too much CV joint angle.

One solution was removing the front RC spacers and replacing them with front spacers from Daystar.

YMMV
