driveline vibs on an lj

So I put on my OME lift this weekend on my LJ. I didn't think I would feel any vibes, but starting out in first I can feel them for a few seconds. So I'm just goin to add a few washers. How many should I start out with? I was thinking maybe 2-3 to start out with. I don't want to loose too much clearence. Thanks!

Not very common for LJ's to get vibes with a small lift, but if you're positive they are driveline vibes, then yeah add just a few washers.

I'm not sure, but thats what I think it is. Let me explain it a little more. So if I take off really slow it doesn't happen. If I take off kind of fast like on a hill or just need to not take my time, I feel the shifter wiggle in my hand and it has never done this before until I put the lift on. It only does it in 1st and will only do it for a second or so, so thats why I thought it might be driveline vibs.

Does it happen under constant speed? Or just on acceleration?
