Just one suggestion. The TJ and LJ Rubicons are NOT the same, especially when talking about rear driveshaft vibes. It would be useful for a poster to tell us explicitly if they are talking about a short wheelbase TJ or an intermediate wheelbase LJ. That would help us from confusing each other.

My mistake, I forgot to mention its a TJ Rubicon with a 4" lift also has a 2" BB in the front to level it out.

My recommendation. Spend the dollars for a driveshaft and adj rear upper arms. I ran 4" lift with stock driveshaft for several years. No vibes per se. Then installed proper shaft and arms. Was surprised at how much smoother the jeep was.

On my previous 03 Rubicon I removed the harmonic balancer from the stock transfer case and replaced it with a stock Rubicon front output yoke then had a driveshaft built. If you go that route a stock front Rubicon shaft should fit if you have it shortened.

How did you line the shafts up? It is different for a regular shaft vs. a cv shaft.

I donít think I understand your question, I used the stock front output yoke on the rear of the case.
While I did have a driveshaft built I could have used the stock front shaft and have it shortened to fit the rear.
