Frt Drive Shaft issues with 2 inch lift ???

So on my 2015 JK 2 door manual. I installed a Teraflex leveling kit.. about 2 inch high in front. Did it about 6 months ago and now Im getting a low vibration. Seems to be from drive shaft angle . Been reading around and hear sometimes the factory front DS cant take the angles .. anyone else have this issue >???

Been running my Teraflex leveling kit for 3 years now, no DS vibrations or any other problems for that matter. I also have a 2 door.

The leveling kit imo is not nearly high enough to cause problems. Once you get into the 3" and up territory then you can expect much earlier than normal DS problems.

On the road it's completely fine. It can't take the angle of long shocks and being disconnected off-road.

2.5" TF spring lift on 2dr 3.5" actual lift.50kmiles and shafts still going good. Plenty of trail use too.But never discoed .I would double check your tires for balance and uneven tread pattern.

I had an issue with my front DS after almost 2 years of running a 3.5" AEV lift. Got a Tom Wood's driveshaft. TONS better than the factory one. Highly recommend them.
