So i got a CV vibration. I finished installing a 6" lift a few weeks ago. Vibrating since then. I had a leveling kit cranked all the way up prior to the lift. The CV angle used to be considerable worse than it is now. The question is this, according to the instructions on the lift (i didn't follow these) you're supposed to mark the CV axle location on the front diff so it lines back up when re-installing. When in 4WD sitting on jack stands under the control arms you can see my axles jumping every time they spin around. Is it possible these things are balanced to the diff? If so how would you install new CV axles without knowing how they line up? I'm going to try unbolting the axles tomorrow and spinning them 180* and rebolting them. I just can't imagine they would shake now they the angles are almost flat compared to them being in a bind for the past year and a half....ideas?

Thats the point I'm trying to make...Mine aren't at a severe angle at all now. They were at a bad angle when I had the leveling kit installed but now they are in a much better place. It looks like the bearings are bad and they have a crazy hop in the same place when spinning...I'll try to post a pic of mine from the front so you can see the angle.
