35" tires, 6" Suspension lift Kit, maxed out torsion bars....had to replace the front drive shaft after 70K miles WITH THE LIFT! Bought a front shaft for $70 delivered, 5 minutes to swap it out, done.....However I've NEVER had any weird vibration before...just a slight clunking sound that was the joints wearing out eventually. Most likely doe to the heavy angle on that shaft. Oh well, $70 is worth it to me every so often.

I actually get that vibration in my truck and it is bone stock. I did have the tires balanced the other day and the vibration seemed to get worse as the tires wore though.

Welcome to HTC!!
Have them roadforce balanced call one of these places http://www.gsp9700.com/pub/search/FindLocations.cfm
and make sure you tell them exactly what size tires you have and ask how long their tech has been doing it, do not accept anything over 20 pounds roadforced if they are they are bad tires

Not necessarily. For a (P)tire anything under 28lbs. is acceptable, for (LT)tire anything under 32or34lbs.

The balancer tells the tech if the tire and wheel assy can be matched or not. If not, the tire will have to be installed on a different rim, and the assy. will have to be checked again. It will also tell you if you have a bad rim.

This can be expensive moving a tire from rim to rim but well worth it to solve balancing issues.
