Vibrations and Grinding

Hello All,

I'm having vibration issues. My Jeep is a 2006 TJ Rubicon(50K), recently bought. I have done quite a bit of work on it since I have acquired the jeep, suspension mainly. It currently has a 2" BDS lift with fox shocks (I put on).

I'm having mad vibes through the seat and grinding in the front. I have determined the grinding to be the sway bar links rubbing the frame. I'm installing a Currie anti rock sway bar this weekend.

Jeep has been aligned and tires are balanced.

As far as the vibes here is my plan of action, please tell me what you think. First I'm going to replace every single u joint this weekend. While doing that I'm going to check the angles on the drive shaft. If the angles check out and look ok then im going to balance the drive shaft(maybe its not balanced correctly). If the angles are off, that's where I will have a problem since my control arms are not adjustable. I believe the culprit to be my driveline angles, but hell its just a 2" lift.

My question is this: should I buy adjustable control arms? if so should I buy them all the way around or do I just need either uppers or lowers?

This is my first jeep and Im figuring things out as I go. Any guidance will be appreciated.

Thanks, Casey

Mine was doing the same thing and it was my drive line rubbing the exhaust. But that's pretty noticeable upon inspection.
