Constant Vibs

I recently replaced the UJ's in front and the vibs briefly went away now back
at almost all speeds, so I greased them and still there. So my question is: I didnt mark the relationship at either end, so it could be in wrong and if so how can I fix, also I think I have about 2in lift, could that be it? I checked the FAQ which helped but not much info on putting it in wrong. Thanks

Pull the front Driveshaft, lock the center diff and take it for a spinn. Have you always had vibs from the front before or just after the lift? I have never marked the flange in relation to the shaft and have never had a problem. But if you pull the splined part apart you need to make sure it goes together the right way. If it turns out to be the front shaft take it to a driveshaft shop and have them check it.
Edit: DO IT!

Chris did the vibe start after the 2inch lift? The 90 will have a vibe with as small as a 1.5'' lift. If so there are a couple of ways to reduce the vibe. If you had vibe before lift, it could be a few diff things. R.eport back. JP

well after sometesting its constant but faint at low and moderate at high speeds. Everytime I let off the gas or barely step on it in 4th and 5th it vibs. If it started before the lift I didnt notice.

Hey Hippster: Little touches, little details that make a character full, real.

LOL, good movie! And one of my friend calls me Hippster! have you been spying on me?

Sounds like the vibs are from the lift, next time you take it out for a spinn feel the U-joints on the shaft, if one is much warmer then the others then t is on it's way out.
