I'd check your U-joints first. They were in the same position for a long time and now that the lift is on, the angle changed slightly. I'd change the U-joints first before you do a transfer case drop. Just my opinion, though.

That might do it. shackles throw your rear pinion angle off. your rear pinion should be parrelell with your t-case. i bet you money it isnt now. they make shims to correct this

i did 2" shackles on the back of my lift and it actually got rid of an annoying vibe i had but i think it was cause someone had the wrong lug nuts on the truck. two huge ones right nest to each other while hte rest were stock ones.
