Hello and need advice

Haven't owned a Jeep for over 30 yrs. Recently bought a 2016 2 door Wrangler Willys version and added a 2.5" JKS Jspec suspension lift. Had the driveshaft vibration so I added a set of Rubicon Express rear upper adjustable control arms to get the pinion more in line with the driveshaft. It helped a lot but I am still getting some vibes. I am concerned about angling the pinion much more as I dont want it to be starved for lube. The Rzeppa joints are nowhere near maxed out front or back but are at a pretty good angle coming out of the TC. Any advice on getting rid of this vibration all together? Thanks!

Did you check to see if the driveshaft balancing weight was missing?

Are you sure it’s the rear? A lot of times it’s the front causing vibration. You could remove the front and take it for a ride and see if it’s gone.

And as MoabCarl mentioned, check for some missing weights.

No driveshaft weight issues. Didn't happen till I installed the lift. I have since installed rear upper adjustable control arms and rolled the pinion up to be more in line with the shaft and it seems to have corrected the issue. The lift company should have at least suggested this.....oh well
