Front diff lowering

Hi,I have had my 17 leveled to clear my 295 tires since new. I bought a shock lowerering kit that I installed. The kit came with a front differential lowering kit that I never installed because my cv joint angles don't look excessive.I feel a very slight vibration in the steering wheel and brake pedal, does anybody think lowering the diff will help this?

Personally I haven't lowered the diff, but installing a leveling kit on mine yesterday, I looked at what's involved and looks like a 20 min job. I would do it and see if it helps.

Are your tires balances? Get a road-force tire balance on the front two wheels. You would be amazed at the difference between balanced and unbalanced tires.

Ive been interested in differential drops as well and what all it entails. Seems like from what Ive read, once you start pushing 2+ on the front end, diff drop spacers and UCAs really start to make the difference.
