Front end shakes on acceleration only at low speeds. If I back off the gas the shaking backs off, If i lift off the gas totally then the vibes stop too. There is no shakes at steady speeds or decel.

I replaced front struts and rear shocks. I also installed a 1.5-2" lift on the front. This was a sport model so the quick struts probably lifted it 1".

I am thinking the standard springs and lift added 3" of lift. Could my front CV's have been grooved in to the sport height and cant suffer the lift?

Thanks R4W!

Update: I experimented and tried accelerating in 4x4 and it doesnt shake when I do that. Is this CVs, Driveshaft U joint or something else?

Difficult to guess without checking the front end by a mechanic.

I had a similar problem but not exactly the same and i don't know if that helps: I've got vibrations on acceleration at low speeds when tha car was cold. Vibrations gone after replacing the front right engine mount.

Did you get an alignment after lifting the vehicle. SOP when lifting Jeeps. The "caster" changes when you lift a vehicle.

Front end wise the passenger side inner tie rod is shot. The driver's lower arm is also crusting at the bushings.
I also have not had an alignment.

I appreciate the help so far. Thanks! Let me know.

Had similar issue's with a ReadyLIFT 2" kit.

My 2019 RAV4 would vibrate in 2nd and 3rd gear and would feel upon heavy acceleration.

1 month after Installation I removed the lift kit and had no issues. I have e-mailed ReadyLift and I'm awaiting their response. Hope this feed back helps.
