I dropped my truck in Jan. and ever since I have a noise that I believe is coming from the driveshaft due to the pinion angle being off. well today I notched my frame and while I was there I decided to get some 2*angled blocks to fix the noise issue. well, it didn't change shit. now I am pissed. I am dropped 5 in. in the rear using belltech leafs and 2 in. blocks. wtf to do now? I am guessing I should go have the angle measured by a professional. any suggestions???

driveshaft too long and binding up?

its quite possible.......

this is why i dont recommend messing with geomtry of drivelines by dropping vehicles like this

and never will try it.

just asking for issues and problems.

good luck hope you figure it out.....

x2 on higher degree shims and checking for drive shaft binding.
you can buy an angle finder for like 10 bucks FYI.


and everything is available to correct the geometry after altering the suspension of any vehicle, it's not rocket science.
