Yes, once you get your CV and arms you should be able to remove the TC drop and have no vibes. Swapping the arms and DS are only a couple bolts and take maybe an hour if you don't lube them up good enough. But adjusting the pinion angle and the arms may take a little time.

Ordering my CV shaft this weekend from Tom Woods. Should I get the 1310 series or the 1350?

Rubicons use 1330s....so as long the correct conversion u-joints are used, 1310 is fine for most people.

Got a free diagnosis from Jeep dealer today and they said my front drive shaft isn't balanced and needs to be changed. I still want to get the Tom woods rear CV and uppe CA's but after getting an alignment today I'm hearing clicking noises from the front!!

Take your front driveshaft to a shop and have them rebalance it. It shouldn't cost that much if the only thing that needs to be done to it is a rebalance and would be a whole lot cheaper than buying a new one.

Ok so that means I don't have to get the rear drive shaft anymore? I was thinking of taking the front shaft out and driving to see if the vibes still occur.
