could it have to do with a lift? or the angle of the driveshaft?

anytime you change the angle of the driveline or the height of the body to the frame as in body lift you need to check that the shifter has room to move.

One of the worst habits is to drive with a hand on the shifter for the same reason. shifter will move around and shake, let it be.
