vibration after lift

kinda a stupid ?
so i did a 4" lift on 35's and im getting a vibration at take off and its driving me nuts. i really dont want to start playing with the carrier bearing drop so after some research i decided to get a 1 piece driveshaft made. my ? and im sure of the answer but want to double check is for those that have done this are you putting the slip joint in the shaft as the driveshaft bolts to the tcase and rearend.
thanks in advance
mike

4 inches from my past expierence shouldn't have been enough to mess up the pinion angle enough to where you would notice it but I am wrong a lot!
As far and the slip joint I have always put it at the t-case. What speed is this vibration?? Like 10mph??

Def. sounds like a joint binding. Guessing whoever you had build the shaft balanced it? Can you measure the angle of the joints? If you put the original shaft back in is the vibration still there? I know its a lot of work just trying to rule things out.

um, ford built the driveshaft cause its still the stock one with a carrier bearing drop in it and was looking at going to a 1 piece driveshaft to get rid of the vibes.

Ahh. My mistake I thought you already did the one piece and had a vibration. I know on the mazda end they had a revised driveshaft for that concern. Do you get the vibration when coming to stop as well? There is a cheaper easier solution but you have to keep on it. Prior to the revised driveshaft there was TSB for adding grease to the splines on the slip joint. I have had to do it on all 3 f250 I've had. It is annoying vibration I understand. If you feel like paying for the shaft it would for sure be a better solution instead of a patch. Sorry for my misreading.
