Default vibration after spring over axle lift installed

i am new to this forum, and so far i think it is great! I have just completed a spring over lift on an 88 samy, it included, 2 inch longer shackles, drop pitman arm, z link, spring over, new 1.5 in springs, new shocks, if my calculations are correct, this gives me about 6.5 inches of lift over stock. i put in 1.5 inch driveshaft spacers and now when i drive as i increase speed i am feeling a nasty vibration in the driveline, and kinda of a sound that is like poor gear mesh. to me it seems like the drive shaft is not at a good angle for the u joint to articulate. is it possible that i need more or less spacer in the drive shaft connection, looking for ideas, thanks for any infor. in advance

Sounds like you may have thrown off the drive line angle, which needs correction!

Sounds like you need to re-angle the rear diff and get a high angle driveshaft. Try Arizona Drivelines(drivelinesolutions.com :: this domain is for sale). You can get a shaft from them that can work at angles up to 80 degrees. They also have a 13" slip-yoke available for the front. I had them build the shafts for my sammy. They are bulletproof and perfectly balanced. They have an ad in every 4wheel & off-road magazine.
