Installed 2.5" RC Lift, Slight Drive line Vibrations, Fix?

Last weekend I installed a 2.5" Rough Country lift on my jeep that included shocks, coil springs, sway bar quick disconnects, adj. front/rear track bars and .75" front coil spring spacers making the front sit slightly higher then the rear since I have a heavy bumper and winch in the front. Ever since I installed it I have been having slight driveline vibration. I took it to a offroad shop and had it perfectly aligned, but of course the driveline vibration persists. Although not all that bad, I feel it isnt healthy. Rough Country did not supply a T-Case drop when I bought the lift, should I install one to fix my driveline vibration issue? If so, what would be a good lowering kit to go with for a 2.5" Lift? (3.25" Front/2.5" rear)

Thanks!

You could buy a bunch of grade 8 washers and grade 8 longer bolts and space the tcase skid out that way to minimize the drop. Just keep adding washers until the vibrations are gone. Thats what i did, but thats just me haha. Hope you work your problem out.

Hahahahaha that is an absolutely genius idea, Ive never heard of such an insanely awesome idea. Also, currently the 4wd shifter works fine, once I drop the T-Case however, will I have to readjust the linkage shifter?

I did not have to, but you might. There is a write up somewhere on how to do the washers as the tcase drop. Just search it on google. Its probably cheaper than a tcase drop kit too.
