I have a 06' 2wd XE Titan and i am thinking about installing the cst 8inch suspension kit or a 6 inch fabtech kit.I have heard that there is a lot of vibration in the 2wd model after a lift kit is installed. I know that with a carrier bearing drop kit vibration is reduced, i was wondering if anyone already has either of these two setups and could give me some advice. I dont really do any off road driving i just want as close to factory ride as possible. I am planning to run 35x 13.50 inch tires on a 20 x10 inch rim with 4.5 inches of backspacing. Thanks.

You're misinformed..There is no vibration after properly lifting a 4x2.
But you still need the carrier drop brkt for anything over about 2"...

I have the CST 8" lift and do not have any vibrations. I also do not go off roading I just like the looks of a lifted truck. I am currently running Helo maxx 6 20x10 with a bs of 5. My cooper stt's are 20x13.5 and tend to rub the fender liners up front when I turn but not all the time. You will probably need to do the pinch weld mod and I would also run some type of coilover up front instead of the space and stock shocks. I am sure more folks will chime in with even better info than I can provide but I would also check out http://www.prgproducts.com/titan.php and give greg a call.

Exactly. That is why I said "properly" lifting a 4x2. The carrier bearing drop bracket is needed only if you lift the rear 2" or more.

I have about 7" of lift in the front, and 5" of lift in the rear, with the carrier bearing drop bracket, and have absolutely zero vibrations.

I stand corrected...I should have stated "you might need"...

After the installing the Deaver mini-pak on my truck, I picked up some vibration under heavy acceleration, after installing a set of TC shackles and dropping the truck about 3/4" it was completely gone...So SOME trucks might need the drop brkt...

Ag I was wonderin how your truck rides with the C/Os cranked 3"? I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get the same Radflo's as soon as I sell my tires, so I was just curious.

It rides great. Definitely a much smoother ride than stock. I've had it up to 110 once with it lifted and everything, and it felt solid. No vibrations or anything

I have the same exact lift as agtitan except i have the dr. coilovers, and i have them cranked up 4" and it is a little stiff but going around corners it doesnt have that lean like when i had the stock shocks and springs with the 2.5" prg spacer, i like it and unfortunately the only vibration i have is a wobble from 45-55 from the DamN wheel shop inability to high speed balance big tires.

How about adding a 4" lift spindle, then cranking those coilovers DOWN....I did just that after installing my spindles, the ride is better and it still handles the corners great...
