Postby Romero657 [OP] » Jan 08 2021, 11:35pm

So i recently put a flip kit on my truck 4x4 silverado
I noticed after puttingbit on passnger sude tire is closer to the bed forward then the other side diver side is fine but i also seen i get a loud clunk or wierd tire drag when going over bumps at a angle or turning
Recently i also ripped my druveshaft in half too so thats getging fixed but think its cause its out of splines or what
Need advice on what could be wrong
Diff is bad or axles are bent or wheel bearings cause that passenger tire also wobbles when driving

Need to make sure the center pins are in the holes. Sounds like they aren't, or at least one isn't.

Sounds like basic assembly mistake. But that wouldn't rip your driveshaft in half, so you may have more going on. But start with the basics, as stated above, alignments hole may not be centered. Something definitely assembled incorrectly, gotta find that first.

Truck ever been in a wreck? Is it "crabbing" as it goes down the road?

    My friend said before i dropped it that it seem as the diff was loose nd would move when i would step on it but he says after i dropped it it stopped doing that nd only the wheel looks lile it wobbles which we think axle and
    The diff was disalligmed but we centered it and all but still same problem we just gonna look for leaf springs and see what moves or dont after that
