Hey guys i recently lowered my ED with shortened rear shocks and ultra lows.

now i get a vibration at 30kms, goes away and then a vibration between 50-60km, unless im going full acceleration, i get no vibration at all.

it also vibrates around 50km when i am de-accelerating.
has anyone had this trouble before? it doesnt feel like its coming from one perticular point, but im hinting towards the diff?

any help is appreciated

The pinion angle is screwed.

Tailshaft uni joints could be causing it.

personally i think ultra's are to low for the e-series ( Street use any way) ,its bad enough with superlows .the lower you drop it the more your altering the angle of your tail shaft to the diff ,its most likely hitting your floor pan ,easy fix raise it up ,im using pedders superlows allround my EB and it sits nice no noise or vibrations

or by the looks of it they look the same as standard ones, just with a nut which im guessing is threaded into the rod to give it udjustability? if u get what i mean... is it possible to just modify the standard ones?
