WHY!? Weird Noise - Rubbing/Vibrating

OK so i got the first round of upgrades on my 2012 JKUR. (6speed)

- 3.5" AEV lift
- AEV Pintler
- 315 Duratrac tires

90% of the time when i start to accelerate I hear a weird rubbing noise coming from under the car. Initially i was told that it was wheel rub because I had stock wheel/tire on a lift. Since then, I've upgraded to the Pintlers and I still hear the noise.

It's starting to drive me crazy! what can it be?

I eventually want to upgrade Driveshaft and Exhaust, but I don't think thats the case at this point in time.

Any thoughts??

Thanks!

Sounds like driveshaft, especially since you mentioned accelerating. I know my 3.5 aev coils provided quite a bit of lift and you'd need a driveshaft sooner than later. You should be able to tell the difference in sound relative to speed. Tire rub would be much slower then a driveshaft at speed. Have you crawled under to check on marks to driveshaft, tires, etc? I wouldn't think wheel weights as there's plenty of clearance with stock 17s from calipers. Unbolting a driveshaft and going for a drive may help with figuring it out.

I agree with drive shaft especially since it did it with the stock wheels and tires. Was the pinion angle checked and corrected after the lift was done?
