Shuddering/Metalically noise

Alright guys, as lots of you know i got home and got to drive my truck for the first time after the lift Yesterday, i have been driving it almost all day both days so far.

ANYWAYS, I have noticed a few things, NONE of which were there BEFORE i left for the summer, aka, before the truck went in to get lifted/re-geared

1)When ever i start off from a dead stop the truck shudders, no matter how much gas i give it.. if it was a rolling stop it doesnt happen.

2) There is a new noise.. metallicy? It doesn't sound like anything i have heard before under my truck.. Could it be the tranny possibly low on oil? or the T-case..

3) There is a new noise when the clutch is partially engaged but that may have something to do with another noise related to the clutch haha


Sorry its vague, its the best i can describe it.. i can TRY to get a recording tomorrow, ill do my best. I want to take it back to Krawltex and have them look at it, but im sure that they wont be able to bring it in tomorrow . Im NOT taking it in and having to pay for anything since its something that happened in their shop.. UNLESS these happen with the RCD kit/4.88s?

Anyone?
Thanks
-Matt

How old is the clutch and was the flywheel resurfaced when it was last changed ?
Did the boys at the shop take it out for a little "play" time before you got it back ?
