Personally I use the MORE 1" Bombproof MM's. They are a full replacement mount and not a puck style lift setup. They are a bit more expensive, but worth it in my opinion. They are as simple as removing the hardware from the old mounts, jacking up the motor, replacing the mounts and re-installing the hardware.

when you only feel the vibes i donĀ“t think they come from the driveshaft. driveshaft vibes always make a deep grumbling noise.
i think your vibes can come from unbalanced tires. or: did you make an alignment after you installed the lift?

you already have 1" TC drop. i have 4.25-4.5" of lift and only 1/3" TC drop and i have no vibes.

X2, I have these installed as well. Well worth the few bucks.
