Hmm... Not enough info. What kind of shackles did you have on there to begin with, & what kind of shackles did you install? Also, did you add the 4" lift recently, or has it been on there a while?

A few pics would help as well if you have a camera :)

He's talking about driveline vibrations.. not just normal its an old jeep vibrations.. both he and I have yjs.. he's trying to figure out for you if the lift height has caused you to go beyond the limits of your slip yoke rear driveshaft. Did you shim the rear axle when you installed the lift? Also what's the measurement of the shackle from bolt center to bolt center?

You probably are reaching the limitations of your rear driveshaft.. you can do a transfer case drop which can be very cheap.. or do a hack n tap or fixed yoke kit.. all will have varying prices but will help with driveline vibrations

Thats something you will want to address like explained above.. driveline vibrations if let go over time can cause premature failure.
