Anyone else having this issue with Rough Country suspension?

I just had Rough Country's 6 inch lift kit installed and now I feel a little bit of a rear-end "shimmy" upon take-off. The company that installed it said they have to order some-do-hickey part to prevent the take-off-shimmy.
Some info on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

They arent charging me for the part or labor. They said that they were told by R.C. its a typical problem with the suspension and the way it fits on tundras specifically...well see if that spacer is the problem.

Common problem with any suspension lift on Tundra. It's because we have a 2 piece driveshaft with a carrier bearing. The lift puts it in a bind and the drop bracket straightens it out

No sway. It's a vibration in the driveline. The ProComp lift probably came with the carrier bearing drop kit. I believe some lifts come with it and some leave it as an option.

I think most people start feeling the vibration when the rear of the truck is raised 3" or more. Mine had a slight vibration with the 3" block that came with the Zone lift. When I added the +3" shackles it bumped me up to about 4 1/2" lift in the rear and the vibration became very noticeable. I added the drop bracket and it no longer has the vibration or "Shimmy".

All of us have had the same problem, regardless of how we lifted the rear suspension. You lift 2-3" or more, and you get the vibration. 1" or 1.5" carrier bearing bracket reduces or eliminates the problem.

It is certainly the carrier bearing. The shop that lifted it should have know to order the carrier bearing drop/spacer when they did the lift. You will get this with pretty much any lift over 4" on a truck with a two piece drive shaft. I have never had a problem with a Rouch Country lift. I think they are great quality for the cost. I will however never install another pro comp or sky jacker. I usually do zone, bds, or rough country. Probably do 2-3 rough country a week for the last 8 years. Not an issue yet. Rest assured you bought a good kit, problem should be solved for you soon once they install the bearing drop.

The 2wd's need a spacer made to lengthen the driveshaft too.

What's wrong with the Skyjacker kits? One of them comes with a new leaf pack.

In my experience, a lot of the kits I have received have been incomplete from both companies. I have missing bolts mostly and sometimes actual components. With Skyjacker I have not been impressed with their shocks either. I know several people who have had good luck. I have never had an issue with the bds, zone, or rc which is why I now just stick with them.
