Getting rid of vibrations..

I recently installed a 4 inch suspension lift on my 97 TJ with 2 inch spacers in front. So 5-6 inches in front and 4 in rear. I also installed a ~.5 inch t case drop and 1 inch MML. I have slight vibes from 20-30 but it kills me iknowing I'm wearing out my U-joints and t-case. I understand the importance of a SYE and CV driveshaft.
My questions are-
Where should I start?
What kit would you recommend?
What do I need to know before I order and install this kit?
Thanks guys!

Go with a JB conversions SYE. After SYE install you can order a custom driveshaft based on your rigs actual measurements. I am please with my Tatton's driveshaft. You will also need to purchase adjustable upper rear control arms. Keep in mind that adjustable lower control arms may also be necessary. Expect to spend at least 1k to properly complete this project.

You might as well do a tummy tuck while you are installing the sye. No reason to retain that stock tcase skid after spending all the money to lift your rig.

I'm considering just dropping the t-case another inch for now until I can save up.. This is my DD.

I'd start by taking out the 2" front spacer.

You don't think that that would put even more of an angle on the drive line angle?

You still need a cv shaft and adjustable rear upper control arms.

Thanks! I'll probably go Tom Woods on the shaft but what's best on a budget for control arms?
